I am always looking for items to share with my students in Caribbean and/or Latin American literature courses. [Shout out to my students in Literature of the Hispanic Caribbean!] This item, posted by Kaiama L. Glover on Twitter yesterday (mèsi anpil!), comes in just in time for our discussion of Alejo Carpentier’s El reino de este mundo [The Kingdom of This World] this week. A brief historical-comic by Rocky Cotard and Laurent DuboisThe Slave Revolution That Gave Birth to Haiti. This item was produced and posted by The Nib, which specializes in “political satire, journalism and non-fiction comics on what is going down in the world.”
