Banner Art detail: Gloretta Baynes, "Hope for Haiti"
Hope for Haiti is a celebration of the dignity and resilience of the Haitian people in the face of adversity. It incorporates a Matriarch, different generations, ancestors,
and the national bird of Haiti. The text is the National Anthem of Haiti in Haitian Creole, "For Haiti, the Country of the Ancestors," "Pou Ayiti peyi Zanset yo."
