“Lanbi Call” (named for the conch shell used to rally freedom-fighting enslaved Africans in Haiti) alternates with “Asia Pacific Forum” on Mondays at 9pm (next scheduled for Aug. 10). Currently Dominicans thought to be of Haitian ancestry are being stripped of their citizenship and bullied and forced off the eastern part of the 2-nation island into a Haiti still not recovered from the 2010 earthquake or its aftermath. Yet on July 13, the newly restored program about the internal challenges and external exploitation of the first free African nation in the West was pre-empted from one of its two monthly airings for a pre-recorded fundraising pitch.
