Abstract

This documentary tells the story of General Toussaint Louverture, the Haitian Revolution, and the creation of the first black republic in the modern world. Born enslaved, Louverture wins his freedom only to risk it by supporting the most successful slave uprising in history. Although inspired by the French and American Revolutions, the creation of Haiti rocked the United States as well as the colonial empires of France and Spain.
