Our sister company Respect Your Legacy Records are set to start work on a Haitian Revolution project
The main purpose of the the Haitian Revolution project is to raise the profile of what they see as a significant moment in human history. Haiti was the first place where African slaves were able to fight for and win their freedom.
“We feel like The Haitian Revolution was a monumental moment in human history is not really given the notoriety it deserves and we want to do what we can to change that”
The Haitian Revolution Project
It was the first successful anti slavery revolution mounted by the Africans who were taken from their homeland. It had a huge impact on slavery throughout the Americas at that time and was a source or inspiration for others who were in slavery. This was the first sign that freedom was possible.
The Haitian Revolution was the only slave uprising that led to the founding of a state free from slavery and ruled by non-whites and former captives. Although an independent government was created in Haiti, the country’s society remained deeply affected by patterns established under French colonial rule.
Respect Your Legacy Records
“We’re looking to work with artists and musicians from anywhere in the world that have an understanding of the revolution and are able to convey that in their art. Of course we would love to work with people from Haiti as well.”
Respect Your Legacy Records states that the plan is to release a musical project but they also remain open to any other projects that may evolve along the journey. At the moment, the working title for the Haitian Revolution project is ‘Liberty or Death’ which is the same sentiment that motivated the Haitian people of that time.
