His act of bravery and intelligence during the revolution is what is believed to have established the independent black state of Haiti and completely abolished slavery.


Actor Danny Glover

Danny Glover will star as Toussaint L'ouverture in "Roots of Liberty: The Haitian Revolution and American Civil War". Danny has been working on this film for quite some time and is very excited to have finally nailed down the script and get it off the blocks. This has got a lot of people excited in the stage pageant arena. Director Megan Sandberg-Zakian mentioned that the film would be highly exciting and humbling experience and that it would be great to be in the presence of such a revolutionary figure.

The film would be a part of a program called Freedom Rising. Freedom Rising is a 3-day program that will be held in Cambridge and Boston between May 2 and 4 to honor the 150th anniversary of Emancipation Proclamation and the African-American military service. What is truly exciting about the stage pageant is the fact that it will be held at the Temple Baptist Church in Boston, which is where the Emancipation Proclamation was first read to the public on January 1st, 1863. All in all, it is going to be a wonderful occasion and a great stage pageant to look forward to.
