Leaders of the pioneering educational publishing company "Educa Vision" recorded an oral history of their enterprise. Speakers were founder and publisher Fequiere Vilsaint, author and vice-president Maude Heurtelou and Carol Hollander, editor of the firm's Caribbean Studies Press. Established upon a fundamental commitment to recognize, build upon and develop the linguist and cultural asset that is a Haitian-Creole speaking child's native language, the press supports this child when he or she enters a predominately English-Language classroom.
