Haiti: un network di testi nel Freedom’s Journal

Freedom’s Journal, the first black periodical published in the U.S. (1827-29), was a cultural and political engine with an international scope and the clear intent to influence the vision of American polity. When focusing on one of the nodal points of this publication – Haiti and its recent revolution – a complex network of texts  merges, showcasing a set of revolutionary figures such as Toussaint Louverture and Masaniello, and militant fictional characters, such as Theresa and Maria de Carmo. This network provides the subtext, cautionary tales, and historical foundation for the anti-slavery and anti-colonial struggles that the black press is envisioning for the present time and the future.
