Slave Revolts in Atlantic Wrld

Africana Studies 226

Usual Description

Open revolt was but one expression of resistance to slavery. Throughout the Atlantic World enslaved Africans and their progeny plotted revolts and in hundreds of cases were able to foment rebellions but only one was successful. This course provides an in-depth examination of these phenomena in the Atlantic World by analyzing their aims, planning and execution. It also seeks to understand why they failed and why the Haitian Revolution was the only successful slave revolt.
