A Symposium Commemorating the Bicentennial of the 1811 Slave Uprising in Territorial Louisiana

In January of 1811 hundreds of enslaved Africans and African-Americans living west of New Orleans launched the largest slave rebellion in the history of North America and the United States. Although this revolutionary struggle failed and dozens of people were summarily tried and executed in the aftermath, the 1811 Rebellion was an emblematic event that occurred in the midst of an age of revolutionary change for enslaved African-descended peoples through the Americas, marked most significantly by the success of the Haitian revolution (1791-1804). In collaboration with Destrehan Plantation (a significant site in the 1811 rebellion), the River Road Historical Society and the New Orleans African American Museum, Tulane University will host a series of events to raise the awareness of this major historical event.
