In the 1970s, writer and intellectual Raphael Confiant had a radical proposition: That Creole culture was, in fact, central to Antillean culture, whose ancestral roots included Chinese, Indian, and European influences. His vision launched a revolution among scholars and artists known as the Creolité movement, which would advocate for the use of the Creole language among the Martinican population. As part of our ongoing exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet, Confiant will interweave excerpts from his writings on Creolization, with musings on his close friend and confidante, Edouard Glissant.
