1811 Slave Revolt Tour.

Louisiana Museum of African American History. The hidden side of history.

Guided tour by Prof Leon Waters | tel 504 432 9901 | history.hidden@gmail.com | historyhidden.net

 

2010/07/21 New Orleans, Lousiana.

 

Walking in the steps of the slaves that rebelled in 1811 in Louisiana, marching on New Orleans for their freedom. The largest slave revolt in the United States and the least known.

 

For centuries, black slaves were exploited to death, forced to manipulate toxic materials and exposed to mortal gases - just like mostly black labour is forced today to clean the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill without respirators not to "spread hysteria" on BP's order. The most cruel chapters of history are repeating again and we are witnessing it on youtube without a surprise.
