“Eddie’s Perejil” is a gripping solo written and performed by Edward Paulino about a working-class Dominican-American college student who stumbles upon a document describing a long-forgotten genocide of Hatians by the Dominican Army under Gen. Trujillo known as the 1937 Haitian Massacre. This discovery and subsequent self-reflection sets him on an inescapable collision course with his romanticized notion of what it means to be Dominican in the diaspora.
