The Haitian Revolution and the origin of the Dominican Republic


“Confronting the Black Jacobins” Book Review interviews author and professor Dr. Gerald Horne about his new book, “Confronting Black Jacobins”. We discussed the Haitian Revolution, the origins of the Dominican Republic, and the doubling in size of the United States.


We talk about Haiti’s role in abolishing slavery in the Western world. We talked about the role that Washington, London, Paris, and Madrid played in warring with the abolitionist nation. We talked about how Haiti and the U.S. both had plans to relocate U.S. Negroes to the Dominican Republic, at different times for different reason. We also talked about the dilemma that the U.S. was in, when it dealt with Haiti, and much much more. If you would like to hear more from the Block Report, you could go to
