The Haitian Revolution was a turning point in history in which people of African descent broke their mental and physical chains to fight for their freedom and subsequent independence from European colonial powers in 1804. The courageous achievements of great men such as Toussaint Louverture and Jean-Jacques Dessalines had become household names all over the world due to their political and military which rivaled the great generals of the era. But any true observer of this time in history would tell you the success of this revolution would not have been possible without the participation of countless numbers of women. These brave mothers, daughters, and sisters sacrificed not only their lives but the lives of their families to put an end to the inhumane practice of slavery and oppression which lasted several generations. This book aims to shine a light on just a few of the many womn that that participated and fully engaged in the fight for freedom in Haiti.
