Twitter U: 1831 Jamaican Slave Rebellion

I follow some really smart people on Twitter. This is an ongoing series I call: Twitter U. Cause the learning never stops and comes at you in 140 chars.

Today's "class" is brought to you by Historian Liam Hogan. I first discovered him because he was doing Yeoman's work disassembling the "Irish slaves" myth. As an Irish Historian it troubled him that this fallacy was cynically being used to silence Black people by White Nationalists and to boost Irish Nationalism. He touches on a number of subjects in his tweets and always provides back up in the form of documents. He's definitely someone worth a follow.
