Egalite for All: Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution

2009 NR

This fascinating documentary explores a unique uprising at the turn of the 19th century: the Haitian Revolution, led by former slave Gen. Toussaint Louverture, which proved to be the only successful slave insurrection in world history. The remarkable event led to the establishment of the first black republic and provided inspiration for anti-slavery movements in the United States and all around the world.
