The William Monroe Trotter Institute for the Study of Black Culture, American Studies Department, and Africana Studies Department invites you to see a film set during the Haitian Revolution.

Lydia Bailey focuses on freedom and dignity, with scenes of blacks and whites working together for the greater good, reflecting the values of the American civil rights movement. 

In 1802, during Haiti's struggle for independence from Napoleonic France, an American lawyer seeks a client's daughter living on the revolution-torn island amid the slave rebellion led by Toussant L'Overture.
