Virtual: ‘Femmes of Freedom: Women and the Haitian Revolution’
February 20, 2021 at 9:00 am - 10:30 am
As part of the North Carolina Conference on Latin American Studies (NCCLAS), Crystal Eddins, an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte, will present a webinar for educators on women and the Haitian Revolution on February 20 at 9:00 a.m. Though it was a monumental event that is regularly taught in world history courses, the role of women specifically in the Haitian Revolution is rarely considered in classrooms. In this session with Eddins, secondary and community college educators will explore perspectives for understanding women in colonial Haiti, discover the roles that women played in the Haitian Revolution, and learn why there are silences in the archives about this topic.
This workshop is part of the North Carolina Conference on Latin American Studies. One Professional Development (PD) hour is available for each conference session attended. This event is generously supported with funds from the U.S. Department of Education. Register here to attend.
