Who will tell the stories of those who refused to be slaves? The Atlantic slave trade transported millions of humans from the coasts of West Africa into the New World, stripping them of their dignity, freedom, language and culture. The accepted notion is that these Blacks willingly submitted to the chattel slave system, accepting their new lot in life. When one scours the records, a different story emerges. Black Rebellion chronicles the active resistance of Africans in the New World against their oppressors. These firsthand accounts reveal much that has been neglected in the traditional telling of history. Black Rebellion is a collection of historical literature documenting major slave revolts and uprisings throughout the Americas, written primarily by contemporaries and eyewitnesses. It contains accounts of Nat Turner's Revolt, Gabriel Prosser's Rebellion, Denmark Vesey's Conspiracy, the Stono Rebellion, the Haitian Revolution, and the Maroon Wars of Jamaica and Surinam, as well as a timeline of Western slavery and revolt. This collection is further illuminated by an introduction by Dr. Sujan Dass. Other essays address why most slave revolts were betrayed by fellow slaves, the role of music in rebellion, and resistance to slavery among African leaders. Contains the full text of T. W. Higginson s Black Rebellion: Five Slave Revolts (1889), the full text of Joshua Coffin s An Account of Some of the Principal Slave Insurrections (1860), excerpts from Marcus Rainsford s An Historical Account of the Black Empire of Hayti (1805), excerpts from William Wells Brown s The Black Man, His Antecedents, His Genius, and His Achievements (1863), and other works.

About the Author:

T. W. Higginson (December 22, 1823 May 9, 1911) was active in the American Abolitionism movement during the 1840s and 1850s, identifying himself with disunion and militant abolitionism. He was indicted with Wendell Phillips and Theodore Parker for participation in the attempt to release the fugitive slave, Anthony Burns, in Boston in 1853, and was engaged in the effort to make Kansas a free state after the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill of 1854. During the Civil War, he served as colonel of the 1st South Carolina Volunteers, the first federally authorized Black regiment, from 1862-1864. After the War, he spent a great deal of time writing about his ideas and experiences, describing his experiences with Black troops in Army Life in a Black Regiment in 1870. This text contains five chapters of Higginson s "Travellers and Outlaws: Episodes in American History", originally published in 1889. This collection is commonly referred to as Black Rebellion: Five Negro Slave Revolts. Joshua Coffin (October 12, 1792 June 24, 1864) was an American antiquary and abolitionist. Coffin was a headstrong proponent of emancipation, and was one of the founders of the New-England Anti-Slavery Society in 1832, being its first recording secretary. This book contains the complete text of Coffin s work, "An Account of Some of the Principal Slave Insurrections: And others, which have occurred, or been attempted, in the United States and elsewhere, during the last two centuries, with various remarks", originally published by the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1860. One of this text's accounts of Toussaint Louverture comes from the 1863 book "The Black Man, His Antecedents, His Genius, and His Achievements" by Black abolitionist William Wells Brown. Brown (November 6, 1816 November 6, 1884) was a prominent anti-slavery lecturer, novelist, playwright, and historian. Born into slavery near Lexington, Kentucky, Brown escaped to the North, where he worked for abolitionist causes and was a prolific writer. Dr. Sujan Dass received his education in History at Morehouse College in Atlanta, followed by a master s degree in urban education from Georgia State University. At 26, he received his doctorate in education from Argosy University, where he focused his research on the benefits of non-formal education with at-risk youth and disadvantaged populations. In 2000, Supreme co-founded Show and Prove Youth Outreach, a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and empowerment of at-risk teens. In 2006, Supreme Design, LLC was incorporated to design and publish materials and literature for Show and Prove. Supreme Understanding s work has brought him to Ghana, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, India, Japan, Thailand, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, England, the Caribbean, and dozens of cities throughout the United States. He is a member of Phi Alpha Theta, the History Honors Society, and actively involved in educational issues.
