Freedom's Mirror follows the reverberations of the Haitian Revolution in Cuba, where the violent entrenchment of slavery occurred at the very moment that the Haitian Revolution provided a powerful and proximate example of slaves destroying slavery. By creatively linking two stories—the story of the Haitian Revolution and that of the rise of Cuban slave society—Ada Ferrer sheds fresh light on both of these crucial moments in Caribbean and Atlantic history.
