Eyes Water by Eric Esterle
Originally a slave, she was freed by the abolition of slavery in 1794 during the French revolution. When slavery was reintroduced on Guadeloupe by Napoleon in 1802, she joined Louis Delgrès call to fight for her freedom and took part in the Battle of the 18 May 1802.
She was captured and executed by hanging after being granted to wait out her pregnancy.Her story was written by Simone Shawrz-Bart and her husband Andre.
Now this I want to see made into a movie.
What a great movie that would be…maybe we need to let Steve McQueen know about this story…he would do it justice…

Frozen in the hood
how is this the hood. that is clearly a suburbian neighborhood. likeeeeeee can we stop with the casual racism?
For real damn smh
She’s probably studied dance for years and is enjoying the snow, but since she’s black…. yah know she MUST be hood.
God Forbid her name be Rasheeda Jackson. SMH they’ll be making fun all day.
this is how we know “ghetto” and “hood” are synonymous with blackness for white people, no matter what economic class we’re actually in; you will look at us the same way no matter what, so fuck respectability politics and trying to “polite” our way into civil rights
for the fucking comments
By the way, this “ghetto” girl has a name; it’s Allie.
Allie is clearly a talented dancer
