The 28th edition of the Miami Book Fair International (MBFI), presented by Miami Dade College's (MDC) The Center @ MDC will kick-off on Sunday, Nov. 13 with live presentations by several of the country's most celebrated contemporary authors in the black diaspora. A few of the authors, though not of African descent, have written about the black experience in their work, such as Alan Cheuse and Peter Godwin. Others, including award-winning artist and activist Harry Belafonte, as well as noted hip hop historian Nelson George, are African American and have maintained a loyal fan base for many years. During the Fair, the authors will participate in book signings, readings, and one-on-one discussions.
For those of us who grew up in the United States, it is hard to fathom the deep gap between the affluent and the impoverished, coexisting what seems to be harmoniously in one nation. As U.S. citizens, it is even harder to imagine the military in a coup detat, destroying the lives of a rich, successful and loving family. This unimaginable scenario happened all in one night, drastically changing Hans Leger and his family's life in the book “I Am Going Where I Belong. Hans Lindor takes his readers through Leger's trying life. As a Haitian exile to South Florida, Leger's life is about success, failure and inspiration throughout.
