The Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) was one of the defining moments in the Age of Revolutions, challenging the dominant powers of the time, confronting the institution of slavery and promoting an original and radical ideal of republican citizenship. This remarkable social and political experiment, marked by the military and political achievements of its leader Toussaint Louverture, culminated in the proclamation of the world's first independent black postcolonial state. Join Dr Sudhir Hazareesingh, author of 'Black Spartacus: the epic life of Toussaint Louverture' to discuss the significance and ongoing relevance of this remarkable historical episode.
