If you didn’t know Haiti is the first ever black colony to kick the French THE HELL OUT their porch!
Born to Congolese parents the world wasn’t ready for the strategic military leader that was Jean-Jacques Dessalines.
Nicknamed “the Tiger” for his fury in battle. The passion Dessalines had for his people ran deep.
after hearing rumblings of reinstating slavery in Saint Dominique, Governor General Desallines knew he had to act quick.
He alongside Henry Christophe lead a black boss army against the French when they least expected it & had gotten comfortable. Staking his claim to then Saint Dominique & then restoring it to what the Island aboriginals originally called;
He was later renamed & dubbed Emperor Jacques I of Haiti
