The first and only successful slave revolution in the Americas began in 1791 when thousands of brutally exploited slaves rose up against their masters on Saint-Domingue. Laurent Dubois weaves the stories of slaves, free people of African descent, wealthy whites, and French administrators into a tale of insurrection, war, heroism, and victory. Buy the DVD with the "Avengers of the New World" book and save.

A Must See!

Comments about PBS Egalite for All: Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution DVD+Book, SAVE $10:

This tells the very compelling historical victory of Haiti leading the world in overthrowing slavery. It provided a very concise overview of the Haitian Revolution and left me wanting more information but in a good way. Outside of this video, I never heard the story of Haiti from a victorious perspective.It also explains that Haiti has been burdened by many years of fee$ to France. The will, courage and resilience of Haitian people came through. I would recommend this for young and old alike. It has inspired me to conduct more of my own research on this important topic.

Comments about PBS Egalite for All: Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution DVD+Book, SAVE $10:

This special documentary chronicles the events leading to the Haitian Revolution (which was really called Saint-Domingue) the principle players, and finally how the most powerful European and American powers tried unsuccessfully to destroy this tiny Island's bid for freedom. It explains why Haiti is treated abysmally by America today. For anyone interested in political and social history.

Egalite for All: Toussaint Louverture

By Dou Dou Cherie

from Orange County, CA

Comments about PBS Egalite for All: Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution DVD+Book, SAVE $10:

Good documentary and visual information along with interviews with writers and historians. Would like to have seen more depiction of history from Haitian artists, especially artists who painted historical scenes. Would like to have known the name of the plantation owners who freed Toussaint Louverture. Now I have to do more research.
