In this episode of Mid Atlantic, host Roifield Brown dives deep into the unfolding crisis in Haiti, a nation with a rich yet tumultuous history.

Joining us to dissect the current civil collapse is Michael John Downey, president and director general of Downey Global Strategies, an expert in geopolitical dynamics. We'll explore the historical roots of Haiti's challenges, the rise of gang violence post the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse, and the humanitarian crisis that has ensued.
