Haitians in Lexington Oral History Project

Project Summary

These interviews document the activities of the Lexington Haitian Task Force, created to aid Haitian refugees who were transferred from Florida by the federal government to the federal correctional facility in Lexington. There are interviews with federal correctional agency employees, immigration officers, attorneys, clergy, Haitian Task Force members, private sponsors, employers, Haitian refugees, and interpreters. Discussions deal mainly with life in Haiti; the economic, political, and social history of Haiti; maritime law; community attitudes toward the refugees in Lexington; and their cultural adjustment.
