It was the only successful slave insurrection in history. It grasped the full meaning of French revolutionary ideas — libert�, eqalit�, fraternit� — and used them to create the world's first Black republic. It changed the trajectory of colonial economics…and led to America's acquisition of the Louisiana territory from France. "It" was the Haitian Revolution, a movement that's been called the true birth moment of universal human rights. Vaguely remembered today, the Haitian Revolution was a hurricane at the turn of the nineteenth century — traumatizing Southern planters and inspiring slaves and abolitionists, worldwide.
