It’s a minor miracle that this documentary wasn’t yanked by YouTube for copyright reasons.
In keeping with our Haiti focus, I found this excellent documentary–in suprisingly good picture quality–about the 1791-1804 Haitian Revolution. Students who only know about Haiti from the earthquake would do well to watch this important early chapter in the country’s history.
NOTE: The original copy of this film had its last part missing (yanked by YouTube), so I found a substitute with lesser picture quality. Once the original last part resurfaces, I will replace it on this post.
