Femmes of Freedom: Women and the Haitian Revolution
February 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
As part of the NC Conference on Latin American Studies (NCCLAS), Dr. Crystal Eddins, UNC Charlotte, will present an online seminar for educators on women and the Haitian Revolution. Though it was a monumental event that is regularly taught in world history courses, the role of women specifically in the Haitian Revolution is rarely considered in classrooms.
In this session with Dr. Eddins, secondary and community college educators will explore perspectives for understanding women in colonial Haiti, discover the roles that women played in the Haitian Revolution, and learn why there are silences in the archives about this topic.
