VIDEO: Seven NY Haitians Honored for Country’s Flag Day // Voices of NY

Brooklyn Borough Hall echoed with the festivities of the Haitian Flag Day awards ceremony last Friday. Organized by Councilman Jumaane Williams, the ceremony recognized seven Haitian and Haitian-Americans with five awards for their contributions to the community. Among the honorees were reporter Alisha Laventure, of News 12 Brooklyn, and NYPD Sgt. Herve Guiteau. Dancing and drumming from an East Flatbush-based cultural organization brought a slice of the country to the 165-year-old hall.
