9781584322931: Revolutionary Freedoms: A History of Survival, Strength,

This new perspective on Haitian history features 30 distinguished essays linked to the magnificent paintings by renowned painter Ulrick Jean-Pierre, formerly of New Orleans, LA, that accompany and illustrate this work. Revolutionary Freedoms combines scholarship, experience, and inspiration to more fully reveal the complex history of the island of Hispaniola, as well as its influence in the world. Well-referenced essays cover pre-Columbian and colonial history; critical events and people of the Haitian Revolution; U.S.–Haitian history and links, particularly the special relationship with Louisiana; Haitian connections to South America; the history of Haitian painting; and relations with the neighboring Dominican Republic. The work also features an interview with the artist and an unprecedented section on women in the nation’s history.
