    Default Haitian history until 1804-dvds, books

    Starting from the history of indigenous population of the island, Tainos, until the republic of Haiti was established in 1804.



    Please give the title, mini review(if possible), how you came across it, and whether it's worth OWNING, or renting/borrowing it from library of elsewhere.

    Thanks in advance.

    Égalité for All: Toussaint Louverture and the Haitian Revolution | PBS

    pretty straight forward doc. with recreations of events ,definitely worth owning.

    about 60 minutes long, don't remember whether I first saw it on pbs or the History channel

    caught the last 3/4 of it and went ahead and ordered the dvd. version I have is in English & doesn't have French subtitles, which is a bit odd since I got it with full intentions of ordering future copies for family in Canada and France.


    Lot of complex issues and factors surrounding the rebellion/revolution both on the island and in France and the doc does a decent job of telling the story.

    Haitian and American scholars are featured throughout.

    Also see: "Why the Cocks Fight: Dominicans, Haitians, and the Struggle for Hispaniola" Amazon.com: Why the Cocks Fight: Dominicans, Haitians, and the Struggle for Hispaniola (9780809097135): Michele Wucker: Books

    Excellent narrative that melds the history of both cultures . . .
