a884: Re: a878: Toussaint "Ginou" Louverture ? (fwd)

From: mpierr04@fiu.edu

I have read that the Louverture was added either to denote the fact that he had a gap in the front teeth or because he opened doors for the African/Haiitan people by being the leader of the revolution.
I'd like to see those other sources too. In the meantime, I recommend, Joan Dayan's book Haiti and the Gods, as well as the Black Jacobins by CLR James.
