The Haitian Revolution - A short Reading List (of Anglophone scholars)

"More than two hundred years after Haitian independence was declared on January 1, 1804, it remains a challenge to perceive the spirit that fueled the first abolition of slavery in the New World and gave rise to the second independent nation in the Americas. As recently as ten years ago, the Haitian Revolution (1789-1804), which created “Haiti” out of the ashes of French Saint Domingue, was the least understood of the three great democratic revolutions that transformed the Atlantic world in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. That is no longer true. In the decade since the 2004 bicentennial, a genuine explosion of scholarship on the Saint-Domingue revolution has profoundly enriched our memory of what Hannah Arendt, in her comparative study of the American and French revolutions, called “the revolutionary tradition and its lost treasure”. It is not clear to what extent this development has affected broader public understandings of the Haitian predicament, however."

By Professor Malick W. Ghachem for the John Carter Brown Library online exposition: “The Other Revolution: Haiti 1789-1804.”

* Much more scholarship could have been included in this list. To find more monographs and articles on the Haitian Revolution or, for a general reading list on Haiti, see here and here.

One of the best mom moments in TV history. I wish more parents knew how important it is to validate their children’s feelings.

an interaction with my mom would be something like this:

Me: mom, I’m really sad and having really dark thoughts and taking medication for it.

Mom: omg, what did I do to deserve this? What is wrong with me? I’m so sorry, it’s all my fault *starts crying*

Me: mom, please don’t cry. It’s not your fault. And it’s not too bad, I might even stop taking the medication next week the doctor probably exaggerated.

Mom: *sobbing*

me: please, don’t be sad. You’re a great beautiful mom and haven’t done anything wrong. I’m happy, look *smiles with her white teeth*
