Philippe Dodard can't remember the first time he came to Miami. He lives in Haiti and has always come to visit one family member or another.
"What is interesting about Miami is every time I come back, I see something new," says Dodard. "And now I see that the culture is getting more and more alive everywhere."
By "culture," he means Miami's Haitian Heritage Museum, Haitian Compass Festival, and Haitian Heritage Month in May.
