The month of May has many meanings for Haitians in America. Aside from May being Haitian Heritage Month, May 18 is also Haitian Flag Day. The last Sunday of May is observed as Haitian Mother’s Day.
According to Curbed Miami, between 2011 and 2015, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties had the highest population of Haitian immigrants in the United States. Brookings Institute says Haitians are the second largest immigrant group behind Cubans in the U.S. The House of Representatives recognized the culture by passing legislation, Bill HM 333, to observe and commemorate it.
Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties are hosting art exhibits, concerts, and other events in honor of Haitian culture. It’s no surprise that Haitians and Haitian-Americans alike are announcing their biggest wins during this month. For example, Wildin’ Out actress and singer, Jessie Woo, debuted her new music video, “Voye Dlo,” featuring Wyclef Jean on May 18. The Florida International University alumna also shared scenes from her new TV show, A La Carte

Local municipalities are also joining in on the festivities as a response to their Haitian communities. In Miami, Commissioner Jean Monestime, of District 2, is hosting a series of events in partnership with the Miami-Dade County government. District 2 includes portions of the City of Miami, North Miami (home of the Little Haiti neighborhood), North Miami Beach, Opa-locka, City of Hialeah and unincorporated areas of Liberty City, Biscayne Gardens and North Dade Central. Events include author panels, entertainment, book fairs, storytelling and other activities for friends and families.
The City of North Lauderdale made an announcement for it. The City of Boynton Beach declared a proclamation for Haitian Heritage Day on May 17. Caralle Severe, the president of Palm Beach Haitian Heroes, Inc. accepted it on behalf of the community.

It’s not just local municipalities that are showing the Haitian community love. Miami’s robust art scene continues to include the culture for the entirety of May. For example, the Haitian Heritage Museum will have beautiful art, artifacts, music, films and a collection of literary works on display. And the Little Haiti Cultural Complex will host many events throughout the month.
The Palm Beach County Library System unveiled its newly-renovated Lantana Road Branch. The library has a Haitian Cultural Collection that features books written in Haitian Creole, French, and English that spotlight Haiti’s history.
