Publisher's Summary

Explore How the Slaves Freed Themselves in the Haitian Revolution
The Haitian Revolution was a slave rebellion that began in 1791 in the French colony of Saint-Domingue, now known as Haiti. On this small island, the tyrants were the slave owners, people who not only denied their slaves freedom, but felt justified in killing them.
The Haitian Revolution began to change the way slaves were viewed all over the world. Although it took nearly another 100 years to eradicate slavery in the west, the parallels between what the Americans and French had done to the slaves was impossible to ignore. The Haitian Revolution was the first and only time that a slave rebellion resulted in a new state.

Important History

This was a great book! It helped me understand the importance of Haiti prior to gaining independence from France and why the country is in its state today. The story is heartbreaking but also empowering and reading it will make you want to know more about Haiti and what can be done to help its citizens.
