Brief notes of a Haitian son

For much of his life MrJeffDess lived life embedded in two different worlds. As the child of Haitian born parents he was fully entrenched in his cultural heritage of his parents’ homeland. While experiencing that he also had to deal with urban surroundings of Jamaica, Queens, New York. These two worlds often clashed. Within this session MrJeffDess helps the audience understand the duality of his cultural situation. The picture of immigrant culture, Haitian and African American struggle, poverty, discrimination, power struggle and more will be painted.
