The Haitian Revolution, History's Most Successful Slave Revolt with Dr Nicole Willson


The Haitian Revolution caused a seismic shift in global politics. When a mixture of different groups on the French colony of Saint Domingue rose against the colonists, few expected the rebellion to succeed. However, under the leadership of Toussaint L'Ouverture, the Haitians became one of the few peoples to not only successfully rebel against their masters, but also to success in retaining control over the colony.
Dan talks to Dr Nicole Willson, an expert in the history of Haiti about the revolution and the key actors in the conflict.
