Haitian Heritage and Pride

“The Haitian Revolution has often been described as the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere. Slaves initiated the rebellion in 1791 and by 1803 they had succeeded in ending not just slavery but French control over the colony.”

That’s right… Haitian slaves freed themselves!! Learn more…
