Join us for an online screening of "Égalité for All: Toussaint L’Overture and the Haitian Revolution" on August 18th, as part of the 2021 From Slavery to Freedom Film Series.
About the Film
To commemorate the 230th anniversary of the Haitian Revolution, this film is directed by Noland Walker and narrated by Edwidge Danticat. Formerly enslaved Toussaint L’Overture forms a resistance militia that grows into an international freedom movement as Saint Domingue (now Haiti) becomes the second Republic in the Western hemisphere to win its independence from European colonization and the first in world history to overthrow slavery sparking the flashpoint for universal human rights.
In light of the recent assassination of Haiti’s President and the continued turmoil in the nation, Bishop Dr. Leon Pamphile will talk about the film in perspective of Haiti’s current plight.
