Bocas Lit Fest

Event Synopsis

“Toussaint was a mighty man”: 2021 is the 230th anniversary of the start of the Haitian Revolution, led by Toussaint Louverture — possibly the single most influential figure in Caribbean history. How has our image of Toussaint been shaped by historians, biographers, and creative writers — and what do his career, ideals, and ultimate fate mean for Caribbean civilisation? Biographer Sudhir Hazareesingh (author of Black Spartacus) joins literary scholar Marlene Daut (co-editor of Haitian Revolutionary Fictions) for a conversation that ranges wide and deep. Hosted by Amílcar Sanatan.
