The Haitian Revolution

The Haitian Revolution, which began in 1791, was one of the largest slave revolts in history and it was the only one to result in the founding of a state. The revolution took place in the French colony of Saint-Domingue and was the key to putting an end to slavery there. This defining moment in both European and American history proved to be one of the most successful uprisings by enslaved Black people.
