The Haitian Revolution unfolded at a critical time in the political formation of the modern world. As the French Revolution gave teeth to concepts like liberalism, democracy, and socialism, this less remembered revolution among one of the most viciously exploited populations in the world at the time questioned how far these ideas would be extended.

Covering the colonization of Saint-Domingue, the social makeup of slave society as it stood on the eve of revolution, and the long periods of often bitter warfare that finally led to the independence of Haiti on January 1st 1804; this lecture is proudly hosted by the Otago Socialist Society and will be followed by an adjournment to a nearby pub or cafe for drinks afterwards.
