AAST 226 - Slave Revolts in Atlantic World

Open revolt was but one expression of resistance to slavery.

This course provides an in-depth examination of these phenomena in the Atlantic World by analyzing their aims, planning and execution. It also seeks to understand why they failed and why the Haitian Revolution was the only successful slave revolt. Enrollment Limit: 20.
