In just two days, 14 thousand people viewed a post from our recent Round Earth reporting trip to Haiti. Why did Round Earth journalist Aida Alami’s reflections go viral? Well, as Mira Kamdar, a former editorial writer for the New York Times, posted on Twitter: “Beautiful report on what a reporter learned and how deeply she was moved on a first trip to Haiti. You will want to learn more.”
Aida begins with Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat, a finalist for this year’s National Book Critics Circle Award.
