HAITIAN REVOLUTION 1791-1804

answer


Haiti revolution was a forerunner and a model for the anti-colonialism movements in many third world countries that came later. During the era of abolishment, there were several attempts by the African slaves to champion for their cause. One of such historical attempt was The Haitian Revolution between 1791 and 1804. This was one of the radical attempts by African slaves for self emancipation in the whole of the Western Hemisphere. Arnold et al.  (1994) assert that the Haiti revolution was not only a major attempt by the African slaves for self emancipation but it also led to the establishment of Haiti as free republic under black majority rule.

Haiti therefore became the first republic in the world to be government by people of African origin. It marked the end of French rule in Haiti which was by then known as Saint-Domingue. The Haitian Revolution starting from 1791was the hallmark of a number of revolutions by the French enslaved blacks in the slavery era. Therefore we can argue that Haiti revolution was a forerunner and a model for the anti-colonialism movements in many third world countries that came later.
