African Americans and the Haitian Revolution: Selected Essays and Historical Documents (Hardcover)

By Maurice Jackson (Editor), Jacqueline Bacon (Editor)
Special Order


Bringing together scholarly essays and helpfully annotated primary documents, African Americans and the Haitian Revolution collects not only the best recent scholarship on the subject, but also showcases the primary texts written by African Americans about the Haitian Revolution. Rather than being about the revolution itself, this collection attempts to show how the events in Haiti served to galvanize African Americans to think about themselves and to act in accordance with their beliefs, and contributes to the study of African Americans in the wider Atlantic World.
