Ambivalent rebels in the French colonial empire: Haitians in Africa, 1896-1986
Matt Robertshaw is researching the impacts of Haiti on French colonialism in Africa. In this talk he looks at the experiences of Haitians who travelled to Africa between 1896 and 1986. He describes how these travellers—citizens of an independent Black republic that had won its independence from France—engaged with colonialism in French Africa and contributed to the transition to independence in several African states.

Matt Robertshaw is a PhD candidate in History at York University. He focuses on Haiti, the Caribbean and French colonialism in Africa. He is also a video essayist via Sleeper Hit History on YouTube.
