    The Memoir(s) of Toussaint Louverture: A Talk with Philippe Girard
    <http://dubois.fas.harvard.edu/events/memoirs-toussant-louverture-talk-philippe-girard-book-talk>

Tuesday, April 9th at 4:00pm
Hiphop Archive, 104 Mt. Auburn St. 3R, Cambridge, MA
Presented by the W.E.B. DuBois Institute

In 1802, Haitian Revolutionary Toussaint Louverture was deported to 
France, where
he died in captivity in April 1803. Before his death, however, he had 
the time to
write a summary of his career that is a unique account of the Haitian 
Revolution
  as seen by its most famous figure. Dr. Philippe Girard, who is 
currently overseeing
a critical edition of the memoirs, will give a presentation at the 
intersection
of history, literary criticism, and linguistics that will cover the 
memoirs' historical
relevance, their ties to the slave narrative genre, and the memoirs' 
importance
when retracing the origins of Haitian Kreyol.

Free and open to the public. Reception and Q&A will follow.
