The Haitian Revolution of 1791-1804 was one of the few successful slave revolts of recorded history, and led to Haiti become the world's first black-led republic.

African Kingdoms

History courses

The study of early African history achieves two key aims. Firstly, it brings diversity and range to what has always been a narrow History syllabus in British schools, and speaks to the modern nation. Second, it broadens the sense of what “History” is as a discipline, and introduces students to different approaches to historical sources and evidence. It offers a new type of History, beyond the traditional “Hitler and the Henrys” approach which has characterised so much of the British school History syllabus.
