The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution von C.L.R. James

The Black Jacobins traces the remarkable history of the revolution in the French colony of San Domingo (modern day Haiti). It describes the events that helped the revolution become the first successful slave rebellion in history.

In particular, The Black Jacobins views the events through the prism of the revolution’s greatest figure, Toussaint L’Ouverture. It shows how he, a former slave who was inspired by the ideals of the French Revolution, successfully defeated the European empires and helped to destroy the brutal practice of slavery in San Domingo.

“One of my favorite things about Blinkist is that it helps you learn about topics you might not delve into otherwise. In my case, without these blinks I probably never would have known about this fascinating bit of Haitian history.”
