1804: The hidden history of Haiti
1804: The hidden history of Haiti is long awaited documentary produces and directed by Tareq Nasheed producer of Hidden Colors – an African history documentary series. The movie 1804 is itself a documentary uncovering “the hidden history” behind Haiti and the Haitian revolution which was the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere. The rebellion was initiated by slaves in 1791 and by 1803 they had succeeded in ending slavery and French control over the colony.
I, myself, cannot wait to see this film. I have seen many other documentaries of Haiti’s revolution, which have always left me with more questions than answers, and even criticism on the film maker. However, this film, 1804: the hidden history of Haiti, I am very excited about seeing how it effects blacks in America in general.
