Haitian Diaspora Chicago celebrating 210th anniversary

As Haitians throughout the country celebrate the 210th anniversary of their freedom from France, those in the Chicago Diaspora join in with them to observe their shared independence. In an address to the Chicago Haitians, the city's Consul General, Lesly Condé, reminded all, while wishing them the usual 'Merry Christmas' and 'Happy New Year', that the 1st and 2nd of January would bring Haiti's Independence anniversary and, in the case of the latter date, Ancestors' Day.
