Introduction: On January 12, 2010, an earthquake of unprecedented scale shook the small Caribbean nation of Haiti. The epicenter of the earthquake, which measured 7.0 on the Richter scale, was approximately 25 kilometers west of Port-au-Prince. The earthquake killed an estimated 222,570 people and left 3.7 million people affected one way or the other.1In the summer of 2010, 1.5 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) were in camps distributed across Port-au-Prince.2That summer, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), an intergovernmental organization dedicated to the humane and orderly migration, undertook a project in Haiti which involved placing suggestion boxes in IDP camps and inviting the displaced to voice their concerns, hopes and dreams. Given the opportunity, the traditionally under-served and under-represented displaced Haitians dropped letters in IOM’s suggestion boxes by the thousands (approximately 2,500). The name of this project was Voice of the Voiceless. The project was the first serious attempt in the country to provide a voice to those who were displaced by the earthquake. Voice of the Voiceless letters (both the hard copies and the digital copies) will soon be housed at the Special Collections of the Florida International University (FIU) Libraries (see Letter of Support from Mr. Leonard Doyle...

Published just seven years after his death, Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies — now known as the “First Folio” — saved for posterity 18 of Shakespeare’s 38 plays, including "The Tempest," "Macbeth," "Twelfth Night" and "As You Like It." In 2016, multiple copies of this original edition, accompanied by six interpretive panels, will tour the nation as the exhibition Shakespeare and His First Folio, providing hundreds of thousands of visitors with a rare opportunity to view this important book in their own community. The exhibition — part of the international events planned for 2016 in observance of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death — will bring the 1623 original edition of the playwright’s first published collection to 53 sites: one site in all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each location will host the exhibition for four weeks. Shakespeare and His First Folio is offered by the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, in collaboration with the Folger Shakespeare Library and Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC).
