Teacher Workshop: Femmes of Freedom:  Women & the Haitian Revolution

Organizer: Corin Zaragoza Estrera, Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at UNC and Duke

Presenter:  Crystal Eddins, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

The Haitian Revolution was a monumental event that is regularly taught in world history courses. But rarely is the role of women in the Haitian Revolution taught. In this engaging and informative session with Dr. Crystal 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 PD hour available for each conference session attended. This event is generously supported with funds from the U.S. Department of Education. Questions? Contact Corin Zaragoza Estrera at czaragozaestrera@unc.edu.

Note: This workshop is targeted to secondary and community college educators, but all interested individuals are welcome.
