Whether here in the United States or abroad, DENNIS WHOLEY sets out to explore the cultural, social and political lives of people around the world.
While on location in the Republic of Haiti, THIS IS AMERICA & THE WORLD explores the country's wonderfully vibrant and rich culture. Dennis hears about the exciting and evolving art scene in Haiti and the crucial role Voodoo plays in the culture of Haiti. Dennis also travels to northern Haiti to see a variety of stunning tourism locations available to visitors and gets a personal history lesson about Haiti when he visits the historic sites of the Sans-Souci Palace and the massive Citadelle Laferrière. These dramatic locations tell the powerful story of Haiti's independence and reveal that Haiti is far more than negative news stories but a country of immense depth and rare beauty.
