Haiti And Dominican Republic
An Island DividedStreaming Video - 2013
In the Dominican Republic, Professor Gates explores how race has been socially constructed in a society whose people reflect centuries of intermarriage, and how the country's troubled history with Haiti informs notions of racial classification. In Haiti, Professor Gates tells the story of the birth of the first-ever black republic, and finds out how the slaves' hard-fought liberation from Napoleon Bonaparte's French empire became a double-edged sword.
