Haiti has long shaped the history of the Atlantic world. While the Haitian Revolution haunted enslavers across the region, people of African descent and abolitionists looked towards the Black nation as an alternative revolutionary tradition. African Americans and others in the period understood the importance of Haiti’s success and the complex nature of its troubles and how its history and future are wrapped up in their own. This course will concentrate on African American intellectual, political, and social interactions with Haiti as an abolitionist politics and a place of Black freedom and Black futures in the Age of Revolutions.
