About Border of Lights @borderoflights : Every year people from around the world come together under the banner of Border of Lights to peacefully commemorate the anniversary of the 1937 Massacre. They come together to breathe life to a tragedy long forgotten, for some, a tragedy they never knew took place. Also known as el Corte (The Cut), when Dominican dictator, Rafael Trujillo, ordered the slaughter of as many as 15,000 Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent on the Dominican-Haitian border. This conversation will be the first of a series of events to follow to commemorate this tragic moment in history. #juliaalvarez #borderoflights #haitianmassacreof1937 #dominicanwriters
