Black Spartacus - Episode Two

In Episode Two of Black Spartacus Toussaint L’Ouverture must choose between staging an uprising on behalf of the Royalist Planters, led by the sinister Count of Charlevoix , against the revolutionaries from Paris , in return for abolition of the whip on all plantations, or launching a full scale slave uprising. One stark question remains. Can the Count, among the cruelest of all planters in the Colony, be trusted?

As a growing air of intrigue and conspiracy gathers pace on the Breda Plantation, Marie, unsettled by all the secret talk of an uprising is caught spying on the plotting slaves. Can she balance her loyalty to her mistress with the rising call to freedom by her fellow slaves? As events unfold beyond anyone’s control how much longer can she go on ignoring the charismatic visionary Boukman’s prophecy that liberty is at hand for all slaves?

Once Boukman gives the signal at a Voudou ritual to appease the spirits of war an irrevocable gulf will soon open between “slaves” and “masters” and the time for choosing will be over…

Black Spartacus - Episode One

In episode one of Black Spartacus not everything is as it is appears on the seemingly tranquil Breda Plantation in the French Caribbean colony of St. Domingue (Haiti).

It is 1791 and strange rumours of liberty and the equality of all men have begun to reach the ears of the slaves toiling on the land courtesy of the bloody revolution convulsing the colonial motherland of France. Is it possible that the principles of liberty, brotherhood and equality could apply to a nation of brutalised black slaves? The white masters think not, but one man, Toussaint L’Ouverture, an ex-slave himself, has other ideas. Trusted by all factions in the colony, whites, blacks, and the increasingly powerful mixed race “Mulattoes” Toussaint sets about exploiting the divisions between the Royalist planters and the Revolutionaries from France to create an opening out of which true equality for the slaves may come.

It has often been said that men do not make history but history makes men. What better example can there be than the story of Toussaint L’Ouverture an illiterate ex-slave , without training, who had no choice but to find greatness as a leader to rescue his people from a dark chapter of history? In this he is assisted by the fearless meddling Voudou Priestess, Mambo Cecile, and by a young faithful house slave, Marie, poised to undergo an extraordinary transformation from a timid servant to a woman who for the first time dares to dream of freedom and beyond…
