Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyed it. Would love to see more. As a very brief overview, the lecturer did a wonderful job compressing so much into such a short lecture. I would love to see a full course covering the full impact of the revolution on other slave-owning parts of the Americas, and on the impact on France and Europe as well. I also want to say how wonderful it is to me that the lecturer is a person of color. Representation matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haitian Revolution I totally enjoyed Professor Daut's lecture. I understand it was a pilot and she had to explain the entire revolution in 30 minutes. She did an amazing job. This could easily be a 30 lecture course. Courses like this will make me stay with Wondrium. I've be a member for a few years, and honestly, I have gotten tired of seeing the same type of courses that were taught in school. One would think black folks don't exist based courses taught in school and the majority of this catalogue. What's the point of paying for a subscription that glorifies one group and ignores another. I had enough of that in high school. If this is expanded into a full course, I would have more of a reason to continue my subscription.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much in one episode There was a tremendous amount of information in a very brief time. I found myself wanting to ask this professor to slow down. I could see this lecture split into two lectures. Would like to see this pilot as a full course but with some necessary changes in speed and the information on the screen needs to be on longer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confusing I thought the lecture moved too quickly. Since there were so many French names and references (a language I do not speak), it would have been helpful to leave pictures of the gentlemen and maps with the areas on screen when referred to during the lecture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want to know more. This course should be extend to at least 12 to 24 episodes. There is so much to cover and so important to understand the history. The presenter did a great job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly important history. Great material. I hope that this pilot is turned into a course. The material is fascinating and needs to be more well-known. The history of Haiti's independence, the French Revolution, American independence, imperialism, and the history of slavery and emancipation are all interwoven into the course material in ways that provide important insight into many aspects of current events and the struggles for democracy and equality. I was especially intrigued by the way that free people of color and enslaved people were at times united and at times were turned against each other in service of those in power. I have to agree with some other reviewers that the lecture was a bit overwhelming and at it was hard to keep track of what was happening at times. These problems could be resolved in the framework of a course.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intriguing subject with an animated instructor. I thoroughly was intrigued with the subject matter and how it was presented. The instructor immediately gained my interest so I wanted to know what came next. The timeline illustration kept me connected to the material, events and people involved so I could follow along. I was really interested in this course and would like to see the rest of the story. Previous to this course I had no knowledge of these events and kept correlating it to our American Revolution events. It was really eye opening.
