As evidence of the impact of the Haitian revolution on the consciousness of blacks in the antebellum American South, there is in the affluent Nashville suburb of Franklin, Tennessee a slave cemetery named in honor of Toussaint L'Overture.
I wonder - two or three centuries from now - who will be immortalized as leaders of the global #MeToo revolution. I'd like to believe L'Ouverture would have been a champion of his sisters' - as well as his brothers' - liberty, equality, and humanity had he lived in our time.
