Storyboard Text

  • Atmosphere of Haiti
  • I'm getting sick and tired of the French controlling everything and forcing us to work for them!
  • Tell me about it! I've been thinking this the whole time since the French came into Saint Dominigue
  • The French
  • Wow! This foreign land is so profitable, we do literally no work and just reap the benefits of the slave labor! Man, life is easy.
  • I know right! I've never been as prosperous from other peoples labor until now! I like it here
  • The time has come! We need to stand up for ourselves and drive out the French!!!
  • Toussaint L’Ouverture
  • He's right! It's our time now!
  • Lets get it!!!
  • Haitians were sick and tired of French rule, impending colonialism and slavery upon them. Due to the unfair treatment of the Haitian people, thoughts of an uprising start to occur.
  • The Agreement
  • Fine. You've got yourself a deal. Don't betray me.
  • Okay, we agree to stop our revolt if you also agree to abolish slavery on our island.
  • The French controlled Haiti during the 18th Century. Their control of Saint Dominigue was very profitable production of: coffee, sugar, indigo, and cotton. This was due to the slave labor that was imposed upon the natives.
  • A Dream Reborn
  • The time is now! Submit to us or die!
  • Referred to as "The Black Napoleon", Toussaint L'Ouverture was a former slave who led the rebellion against the French. L'Ouverture became sick and tired, like the rest of the Haitians due to the actions of the French.
  • A Nation is Born
  • I will call this great, new nation Haiti!
  • Over time, the French agreed to make a deal with L'Ouverture to abolish slavery if the Haitians would quit the revolt. Both parties agreed, but over time, the French decided that L'Ouverture was lying, and jailed him in the French Alps, where he then died 10 months later, reviving slavery.
  • Jean-Jacques Dessalines, a former slave and general under L'Ouverture revives the dreams of freedom that his predecessor once had. On November 18, 1803 Dessalines leads freedom fighters into the Battle of Vertieres, successfully defeating the French.
  • Ok Ok!! I'm sorry
  • On January 1, 1804, Jean-Jacques Dessalines declares Haiti as an independent nation.
