In a time of change and uncertainty, one thing was certainly clear on Saturday, Nov. 12; Haitians are everywhere and they are doing just about everything.
The Haitian Roundtable hosted their fourth annual 1804 List Ceremony and Reception where they recognized 25 Changemakers in a wide array of fields and professions, where they have contributed outstanding achievements, or have served as pioneers in their communities. The 1804 List Ceremony also honored five “Ones to Watch” to showcase the rising stars on the cutting edge in the Haitian-American community, who bring innovation and promise to the table.
The soiree, held at My Image Studios in Harlem was a “Who’s Who?” in Haitian America. The 2016 inductees represented a wide array of industries ranging from the arts to science.
Mona Scott-Young, CEO of Monami Entertainment (Love and Hip-Hop franchise, Money Power Respect) and Dr. Jeff “America’s Psychologist” Gardere, a mental health expert, who doubles as a professor at Touro College in Harlem and TV personality, served as emcees for the ceremony.
