Egalite for All: Toussaint L'Ouverture and the Haitian Revolution. The Haitian Revolution represents the only successful slave revolution in history; it created the world's first Black republic --- traumatizing Southern planters, inspiring U.S. blacks, and invigorating anti-slavery activists world-wide. At the forefront of the rebellion was General Toussaint L’Ouverture, a former slave whose genius was admired by allies and enemies alike. Film will be followed by discussion with Akinyele Umoja, professor of African American studies at Georgia State University. Rated TV-PG, 2009.
