TOUSSAINT LOUVERTURE

A BLACK JACOBIN IN THE AGE OF REVOLUTIONS

The leader of the only successful slave revolt in history, Toussaint Louverture is seen by many to be one of the greatest anti-imperialist fighers who ever lived. Born into slavery on a Caribbean plantation, he was able to break from his bondage to lead an army of freed African slaves to victory against the professional armies of France, Spain and Britain in the Haitian Revolution of 1791-1804.

Authors Charles Forsdick and Christian Høgsbjerg will explore Louverture's fascinating life through the prism of his radical politics, championing this 'black Robespierre' whose revolutionary legacy had inspired people and movements in the two centuries since his death.
