Updates as thousands continue trying to reach loved ones in Haiti

The World

Yesterday on the Takeaway, we united by phone Mallery Thurlow, in Michigan, with her boyfriend France Neptune, an aid worker in Haiti. As details of the destruction continue to emerge, we look at ways Haitians are persevering through the tragedy.

We speak with, Ansel Herz, a freelance journalist in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and Ferentz LaFargue, a professor at the New School, about the spirit of Haitians to cope with grief. We also speak to Millery Polyne, a professor of American Studies at New York University.
