Vincent Ogé 1755 – 1791 was a wealthy free man of mixed race descent and the instigator of a revolt against white colonial authority in French Saint-Domingue. The Ogé revolt of 1790 foretold the massive slave uprising of August 1791 that began the Haitian Revolution.
.
In 1789 he was in Paris on business when the French Revolution broke out. By August of that year he had approached a group of colonial planters living in Paris to propose changing racial laws in the colony that discriminated against light-skinned men. .
Independently Julien Raimond, from a similar background in Saint-Domingue, also spoke to the group of planters. When the planters rebuffed their ideas, Ogé and Raimond began to attend meetings in Paris of a group of headed by Étienne Dejoly, a white lawyer who was a member of the Society of the Friends of the Blacks, an anti-slavery society founded in 1788 in Paris by Jacques Pierre Brissot.
.
They began to pressure the French National Assembly to give them representation and to force the colonists to allow voting rights for wealthy free men of color. Both men owned slaves in Saint-Domingue, and they claimed they did not intend to weaken slavery.
.
He believed that an amendment passed by the General Assembly of France in March of that year asserted the equality of free men of property. When he put pressure on the colonial governor and other authorities to guarantee the voting rights of wealthy free men of color; the colonial governor refused.
.
With support from the British abolitionist Thomas Clarkson, Ogé returned to Saint-Domingue Meeting with Jean-Baptiste Chavannes, another free man of colour, Ogé soon gathered a force of about 250 to 300 free men of color. .
On 20 November 1790, Ogé and 23 of his associates, including Jean-Baptiste Chavannes, were captured and returned to the colonial government in Le Cap.Vincent Ogé was executed by being broken on the wheel in the public square. #blackhistory #history #hatianhistory #blackmen #blackwomen

It saddens me that Christopher Columbus is a household name, but that few people have heard of Anacaona. She was one of the Taino who met Colombus along with her brother. She held very high status in Taino society, probably because of matrilineal lines of inheritance which made the oldest child of a sister the heir. Anacaona helped negotiate with Columbus and continued to negotiate with the Spaniards, working hard to keep peace. After her brother's death she became chief, or cacia. Sadly, at only 29 years old she was arrested with several of her nobleman by the Spanish during a political meeting. The Spanish offered to pardon her and allow her to live if she became a concubine. This amazing and brave lady refused, and chose to stand by her Taino people. She was hanged rather than shot, as punishment. For #womenshistorymonth I thought I would celebrate some strong female historical figures! #anacaona #haiti #taino #hatianhistory #nativewomen

Toussaint Louverture began his military career as a leader of the 1791 slave rebellion in the French colony of Saint-Domingue; he was by then a free black man and a Jacobin.[10] Initially allied with the Spaniards of neighboring Santo Domingo (modern Dominican Republic), Toussaint switched allegiance to the French when they abolished slavery. He gradually established control over the whole island and used political and military tactics to gain dominance over his rivals. Throughout his years in power, he worked to improve the economy and security of Saint-Domingue. He restored the plantation system using paid labour, negotiated trade treaties with Britain and the United States, and maintained a large and well-disciplined army.

Georges Biassou 1741, Haiti – 1801,
.
Jorge Biassou was born "Georges," on the island of Hispaniola. He was the son of slaves in the world's most lucrative colony, French Saint-Domingue (now Haiti). .
With Jean François and Jeannot, he was prophesied by the vodou priest, Dutty Boukman, to lead the revolution.
.
He was an early leader of the 1791 slave rising in Saint-Domingue that began the Haitian Revolution where thousands of abused slaves rose up and poured out their fury on the "great whites." Biassou, then fifty years old, joined them and quickly assumed the rebel leadership with Jean Francois. Biassou commanded 40,000 ex-slaves as they burned plantations and murdered white slave owners.
.
Like some other slave leaders, he fought with the Spanish royalists against the French Revolutionaryauthorities in colonial Haiti. .
Defeated by his former ally Toussaint Louverture, who had allied with the French after they promised to free the slaves, Biassou remained in service to the Spanish Crown. .
He withdrew from Santo Domingo in 1795 and moved with his family to Florida, which was then part of the Spanish colony of Cuba.
.
In Florida, Biassou changed his first name to Jorge. Spanish leaders put him in charge of the black militia in Florida. He was Florida's only black caudillo (a militant political leader), and came with his own Haitian entourage. .
He began to build alliances there when his brother-in-law married a fugitive from South Carolina. Florida had provided refuge for both planters and slaves during the American Revolution.
