Black History Fact for May 15th
1791: Mulattoes freed by Civil Rights in the French colonies.
“The debate on mulatto and free black rights resumes in heated discussions in
France. One proponent writes that “We will sacrifice to the colonial deputies
neither the nation nor the colonies nor the whole of humanity . . . I ask the
Assembly to declare that the free persons of color be allowed to enjoy the
rights of voting citizens.”
The National Assembly responds by declaring a limited number of free-born
persons of color eligible to be seated in future assemblies, with the rights
of voting citizens. Though the action is conservative – only applicable to
persons born of free parents and “possessing the requisite qualifications” –
colonists are furious.” - http://library.brown.edu/haitihistory/4.html
