Voices of Change: Preserving Radio Haiti

The processing and reformatting of the Radio Haiti archives, which contains 3,420 audio recordings and 60 linear feet of paper records documenting the pro-democracy station from the 1960s to 2000.

The Radio Haiti Project will result in global online access to the comprehensive audio archives of Radio Haiti, that nation’s oracle of democracy from the 1960s through 2002 when the station was shuttered following its founder’s assassination. The Radio Haiti Archives (RHA) contains 60 linear feet of paper records and 3,420 audio recordings, all of which will be processed and preserved as part of the project. In addition, the audio recordings will be digitized at preservation quality, preserved in Duke’s Digital Repository, and made available online via Duke’s Digital Collections interface, along with descriptive information, such as the name of each radio program or segment, its length, names of participants, and keywords.
