Storyboard Text

  • Born in 1743 in modern day Haiti, Toussaint L'Ouverture was a slave that was set free by his master
  • Overture was a leader of the Haitian independence movement and in 1791 assembled an army against the french joining alongside with the Spaniards.
  • In 1794, he switched his allegiance to the French because they abolished slavery. He also created the first independent nation in Latin America
  • Overture began trading with the UK and The US in the late seventeen hundreds
  • In 1802, he was captured by the French and he was taken as a prisoner. He died in prison a year before the freedom of slaves occurred in Spain
  • Some quotes to remember Toussaint L'Overture by are:
  • They have in me struck down but the trunk of the tree; the roots are many and deep - they will shoot up again!
  • I took up arms for the freedom of my color. It is our own - we will defend it or perish.
  • We are free today because we are the stronger; we will be slaves again when the government becomes the stronger.
