A Conversation with Fritznel Octave
Haitian Veteran Journalist & Author
In this episode, Rich has a conversation with Fritznel Octave.
Fritznel Octave is veteran journalist (born and raised in Haiti). He lives in the United States but stays actively involved to broadcast the overshadowed and undermined history of Haiti. His work depicts his perspicacious approaches, extensive research, and a deep understanding of human psychology.
He constructs a gateway to understanding Haitians better. With a positive outlook on life and an openness to tackle every challenge, he motivates and guides Haitians to stand up for themselves and their community. He aims to connect his readers with the current political, cultural and socioeconomic
policies of Haiti. He aims to not let the accomplishments of Haitian revolutionists against oppression, exploitation, injustice, and inequity go down the drain. He encourages Haitians to know their worth and make Haiti a safer place to live and thrive.
He started his career in mid-1990 as a host and reporter at Radio “Vwa Fawes” (Voice of the Far-West), a community radio boasting program outreach based in northwestern Haiti. Octave later wrote for various news papers, news agencies, and magazines. Before moving to the United States in the early 2000s, Octave had spent most of his career reporting and featuring for the weekly “Jounal Libete”, local news agency “Haitienne de Presse” (AHP), international news agencies – Inter Press Service (IPS) and Syfia International, and Island Beat Magazine of the Panos Institute among others.
