“Charged with Sympathy for Haiti”

About This Research

This essay marks the Haitian Revolution as a climactic point in history for African Americans because it created a new outlook on the connection and disconnections between people of African descent in varying areas. In the text, the creation of shifting a “Cuban of color,” a poet named Placido, to a “Black” hero by an African American is discussed and outlined with a detailed explanation of how the same hero was treated by the colonial Cuban government and a British abolitionist.
