On a stormy night this past May, as part of Selebrasyon!, we welcomed Mimerose ‘Manzè’ Beaubrun, co-founder of Boukman Eksperyans and author of Nan Dòmi, An Initiate’s Journey Into Haitian Vodou for a moderated discussion with editor and journalist, Joel Dreyfuss.  To a packed room, but in keeping with the intimate nature of our An n’ Pale|Café Conversation series, we were fortunate to have such a musical icon in our midst sharing her views about vodou.  “Vodou is life” she said a number of times.  She laughed with the audience and she also challenged us to be better ambassadors for our culture.  The 300 square foot HCX office was teeming with folks wanting their books signed.  Manzè took great care to talk to everyone and answer questions.  After the signing, Boukman Eksperyans took to the stage and gave a rousing performance.  It was a special evening of dancing, singing and sharing.  A true HCX experience!

If you still want a copy of Nan Dòmi, you can purchase the book at the HCX Boutik.
