AFAM-346 Rebellion and Revolution in the Caribbean (3)

The Caribbean has been a crucial site of violent colonial displacement, migration, and coercion of peoples from around the globe. It has also witnessed many collectively organized movements of racialized exploited people to challenge their oppression. They produced massive rebellions and converged into radical revolutions, which sought to destroy colonialism, slavery, and the plantation economy. This course explores significant rebellions and revolutions from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries, analyzing their accomplishments and limits. It also examines how historians’ interpretations of them have changed over time. Crosslist: HIST-346 .
