A stirring graphic novel of the Haitian Revolution written by renowned Trinidadian historian C.L.R. James and adapted by artists Nic Watts and Sakina Karimjee This impassioned and beautifully drawn book dramatically recounts 'one of the great epics of revolutionary struggle and achievement'-the Haitian Revolution of 1794-1803. It is also the stirring-and incredible-story of Toussaint Louverture, a man born into slavery who rose to become the revolt's indispensable leader. Perhaps more than any other figure from the Age of Revolution, he gave voice to a truly universal call for liberty and equality. This page-turning visual narrative surrounds Toussaint with fiery radicals like Haitian leader Dessalines and intransigent French like Napoleon. Above all, the book portrays the world-changing force of the enslaved Haitian people, for, as James famously wrote, "Toussaint did not make the revolution. It was the revolution that made Toussaint."
