Signal FM was the only radio station that remained on the air through last week’s massive earthquake in Haiti.

Haitian-Canadian author Myriam Chancy clarifies the richness and spirit of Haiti, especially that of women. "There's great strength one can take from these women...Our history tells us it is possible to survive, to have a will, despite how Haiti is portrayed. Our culture, our spirit gives us no choice. We have to endure and that's the heart of Haiti." Also: poetry and music with Lenelle Moise and Emeline Michel.
