On December 2, the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) will host an event as part of its free Humanities Forum series focusing on the heretofore untold story of the Atlantic Slave Rebellion in the Dutch Caribbean. Dr. Marjoleine Kars, Associate Professor of History at UMBC and author of an upcoming book on the subject, tells us more about this history and what it teaches us about the dynamics of other famous rebellions.
