The Caribbean Student Association proudly presents its fifth annual Come Celebrate Diversity. This is CSA's biggest event of the school year, and celebrates the rich diversity and cultures found in the Caribbean. Members of the Colleges community are urged to join in and be immersed in the literature, music and foods of these vibrant and enchanting islands. Come and hear information about the complexity of the English, French, Dutch and Spanish influences. The keynote speaker will be Consul General of the Haitian government in New York Harry Fouche.
Fouche was born in Cap Haitien, Haiti. He was educated not only in Haiti, and also in the Republic of Congo and the U.S. He holds degrees from De Paul University and Roosevelt University, and a certificate from Northwestern University. For 20 years Fouche worked as a staff economist for Illinois. He has traveled extensively in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, and he is fluent in Creole, French, English, and Spanish. Fouche is the founder of Radio l'Union, a Haitian radio station broadcasting in Creole to the Haitian community in Chicago for the past 12 years.
