Video of Artist Dread Scott discussing the "Slave Rebellion Reenactment with Andy Zee, spokesperson for Revolution Books, NYC.
"Slave Rebellion Reenactment" (November 2019) retraced the path of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in the history of the United States. This was the German Coast Uprising of 1811, just outside New Orleans.
"Instead of studying George Washington, a great enslaver, or Thomas Jefferson, a great enslaver, when they talk about freedom... we should be studying people who were actually trying to get free from a system of enslavement which was the foundation of the U.S. economy at the time." -- Artist Dread Scott
