May is Haitian Heritage Month
Haitian Americans in Boston celebrate Haitian Heritage Month 2022 by honoring and highlighting the diverse culture, heritage, and contributions of the Haitian community throughout history. Haitian Heritage Month was first celebrated in the United States in Boston, MA and has since been celebrated for more than 20 years across the nation. We encourage our community to study, observe, and celebrate the Haitian community in our schools and beyond.
