A Dramatic L’Ouverture: Africans, Americans, and the Haitian Revolution

Switzer Library

Join us once again in celebration of Black History Month. On February 7th, we welcome back Dr. Seneca Vaught, Associate Professor of History and Interdisciplinary Studies at Kennesaw State University to Switzer Library for another interesting program about “Black History.”

A Dramatic L’Ouverture: Africans, Americans, and the Haitian Revolution
Dr. Vaught’s program will highlight themes of the Haitian Revolution and what the revolt came to represent for Africans, African Americans, and the African Diaspora. The Haitian Revolution and Toussaint L’Overture can be seen as a canvas at various points of Black History and was used to project notions of progress, pride, and unity. He will illustrate how this revolution resonated throughout Black History and transcended national borders, political beliefs, and cultural boundaries that transcended national borders, political beliefs, and cultural boundaries.
