Garvey was a Jamaican political leader, publisher, journalist, entrepreneur, orator, and immigrant to the United States (Garvey and Hill 13). The movement known as Garveyism was all about crafting the new politics of a “new negro.” During World War I and the 1920s, his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) was the largest black secular organization in African-American history. A million men and women from the United States, the Caribbean, and Africa belonged to the association (Cotman 57). Along with Du Bois, he combined the economic nationalist ideas of Booker T. Washington and Pan-Africanists, along with the political possibilities and urban style of men and women living outside of plantation and colonial societies. Garvey’s ideas developed among the social upheavals, anticolonial movements, and revolutions of World War I, which demonstrated the power of popular mobilization to change structures of power (Garvey and Hill 55).
The Haitian Revolution was sparked from the French Revolution. The Ways of the World explained that “the French Revolution lit several fuses and set in motion a spiral of violence that engulfed the colony for more than a decade” (The Ways of the World, pg. 709). Saint Domingue, otherwise known as Haiti, was a very wealthy civilization. The civilization made its living off of the widely known plantations of sugar and coffee.
Allison Yi 10/17/16 10th Grade Global History Period 7 Introduction: Revolutions were significant events in history that dramatically affected the rights of the inhabitants. The Latin American revolution as well as the Haitian revolution were led to gain independence from the colonial power of France, Spain, and Portugal. The Latin American revolution led by Simon Bolivar and the Haitian Revolution have both similarities and differences as they both started due to the want for political, economic and social changes. BP1 Topic Sentence: The Latin American and Haitian revolution were both started due to the want for social change because of the inhumane treatment they were receiving. At Saturday, April 20, 1793, many of the slaves revolted in order to gain freedom.
In addition, although they all had constitutions, the Haitian Revolution worked to abolish slavery. This is different since both the American and French Constitutions had slavery involvement within them. Another reason on why it’s more revolutionary is because it has a major impact to the slave society. This brought fear to slave owners, and increased rebellions. Overall, the Haitian Revolution is more revolutionary because it resulted in a successful slave
Toussaint Louverture was the leader of the Haitian Revolution. He was born into slavery in 1743 in the French colony of Saint Domingue. The slaves were mistreated for many years, and decided to finally do something about it. A rebellion was started between the slaves and the French, called the Haitian Revolution. Toussaint Louverture was a great military commander because he was a significant part of putting an end to slavery, but he was a shoddy ruler of Haiti.
What was the Compromise of 1850? Since "The Missouri Compromise of 1820" the northern states abolished slavery, however in the southern territories it was still legal.

The Compromise made slavery illegal in California and in the District of Columbia, while in New Mexico and Utah the local ruler would have made the big decision.
With the French soldiers starting the Age of Enlightenment, the people in the third Estate started to wonder why they had to pay all the tax, why the royal family used up all their money in paying for luxuries such as dresses and fashion. Also, the people in the third Estate were granted no privileges, and this angered the peasants - they paid the largest amount of money, and they also took up 85% of the whole population. Why did they have to be treated so poorly? This problem was important, but it wasn’t the key as it was triggered by the Enlightenment and the American Revolution. The Enlightenment was mainly introduced to the people by the French soldiers who came back from America.
The Harlem Renaissance inspired new music, art, and literature that reinvented African American culture. The renaissance also influenced the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s. The main goal of the Civil Rights Movement was to end racial segregation and discrimination towards African Americans. The Movement was also enacted to defend legal acceptance and to protect citizenship rights created in the U.S. Constitution. The Harlem Renaissance set the stage for these influences and changes in America.
Jefferson wanted to abolish slavery but when freed they had to be removed from society since slaves took up most of Virginia’s population. In order to have a “disappearance” of an entirely black population Jefferson deported the future generation by shipping infants to Haiti. Jefferson believed deportation was the best solution because blacks and whites couldn’t coexist in America because of the nature of our color and intelligence. Blacks were “inferior” and were not capable of Christian virtue and salvation (Takaki 65). Many African Americans challenged Jefferson with evidence of what they are capable of but Jefferson refused to change his “opinion” (Takaki
The colonists started to get angry because of the taxes being put upon from the British and it started to escalate from there. Another difference was that the colonists/Patriots had allies to fight off the British and the Haitians did not get any allies, they fought the war on their own. Unlike the reason for the American Revolution, the Haitian Revolution was about the slaves trying to gain freedom. The revolution was more of a slave rebellion and it is said that it was the most successful one in our history. These differences are significant to say that they were not common in a lot of
