Facing Racial Revolution
University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents an excerpt from Auguste Binsse's first-person narrative about the Haitian revolution focusing on 1793, the year in which the black slaves in Saint-Domingue achieved emancipation. Binsse was part of the pompon rouge faction who opposed the granting of civil and political rights to the free-colored population of Saint-Domingue. His account has more to do with relations among whites than with the struggle between the different racial groups on the island.

Keywords:   Haitian revolution, Auguste Binsse, black slaves, emancipation, Saint-Domingue, pompon rouge faction, whites
