The Long Haitian Revolution 

“When history is written as it ought to be written, it is the moderation and long patience of the masses at which men will wonder, not their ferocity.”—C. L. R. James, The Black Jacobins“The Haitian movement, though the most pivotal to the abolition of slavery in the Americas, is the most neglected—we all owe a great debt to Haitians and must pay it.”—Margaret Prescod, introduction to Selma James’s Our Time Is Now
