Monday, Sep 10, 2012 - 5:00 AM    "Haiti & The Dominican Republic: An Island Divided" In the Dominican Republic, Professor Gates explores how race has been socially constructed in a society whose people reflect centuries of inter-marriage, and how the country's troubled history with Haiti informs notions about racial classification.
