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.

Bad editing

For such a short book you’d think at least ONE PERSON would have listened to this before publishing?! The narrator cleared his throat, repeated himself and YAWNED MID SENTENCE lmfao

Also the writing was definitely from an outsiders (colonizers) perspective. “Four hurricanes hit. Villages destroyed. Thousands died”

And the first half of the book my eyes glazed over because every other word was “slaves”. Then it was “former slaves”. Don’t deny people their humanity by never calling them people. I’m not sure why all I see are soaring reviews of this book but I guess you get what you pay for with this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Excellent, Engaging Story That Needs To Be Heard

The story of the successful slave rebellion. This work is very engaging, and the subject is rarely studied by today's students. I have recommended this book to many people, it is really great.
