The Trial of the Slave Trafficking
About the Book
Career judge, teacher, and writer Jean Sénat Fleury lived in Haiti, especially in Saint-Marc. His broad knowledge of Haitian law and his great skill in the art of teaching helped him play a role of trainer at the National Police Academy in 1995 and director of studies at the School of Magistrate in Pétion-Ville in 2004. Author of the important book The Trial of Stamps: The Audubon Affair and the book Jean-Jacques Dessalines: Words Beyond the Tomb, Mr. Fleury immigrated to the United States, specifically to Boston, in 2007, where he received two masters at Suffolk University in public administration and political science. In 2014, Fleury founded Caribbean Arts Gallery in Boston and later became director of a charitable organization called Art-For-Change, whose purpose is to coach artists. Toussaint Louverture: The Trial of the Slave Trafficking is an imaginary narrative supported by moving historical facts and written in a clear and concise romantic style. In this book, the author invents a fictitious trial against Napoléon Bonaparte and several other actors involved in the slave trafficking while focusing on the wrongs of slavery of the time from the fifteenth century to the beginning of the nineteenth century. In the book, the author seeks to make the reader aware of the practice of modern slavery and domesticity. Through the play of fiction, he hides behind the plaintiffs to denounce slavery and the responsibility of leaders around the world to fight this problem.
