Beyond Victimhood: 5 Slaves Who Fought Back and Changed History

Not all of these had the African American experience of slavery, but ALL changed history.

http://www.juancole.com/2016/03/beyond-victimhood-5-slaves-who-fought-back-and-changed-history.html

March 25 marks the United Nations’ “International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery,” which aims to draw attention to the more than 15 million men, women and children who fell victim to the Transatlantic Slave Trade that lasted from the 15th through to the 19th century.

The United Nations calls this 400-year-period “one of the darkest chapters in human history.” And according to the U.N., March 25 is aimed at raising awareness of the dangers of racism and prejudice today.

To mark the day, teleSUR aims to commemorate all victims of the trade but will pay special attention to those who dedicated their lives to ending slavery through resistance and rebellion.
