  1. When the revolution in France happened and word got out in St. Domingue the people in St. Domingue saw that the poor people were overthrowing the wealthy people in France then the slaves in St. Domingue said that they should also fight back and take a stand because they were being treated really unfairly. Since many wealthy people died and St. Domingue’s solders and back up were dead then the poor people had an advantage and started to kill the wealthy people in St. Domingue and started toi take back their freedom.

    The revolution caused the african american to rebel because it influenced them and gave them the idea to rebel and defend themself from st.domingue just like the french.

  22. In France the poor people that were getting treated unfairly were starting a revolution. The people in st. Domingue were in a similar state. The slaves were unwealthy and i believe that the similarities of the two gave the African slaves hope in that maybe just maybe they can also pull off what the French did.

  23. They got tired of the wealthy people treating them so bad that they wanted their freedom.

  24. It contributed/help build the african americans courage to rebel.

  26. Black people rebel because that was treated the same way so they thought if they did the same thing maybe they will get respect or freedom and make the rich people mad and kill most of them so they can’t have help.

  27. wadley , diamond

    the french revolution gave black slaves the idea to rebel against the white french people because toussaint l’ ouverture over heard some white french people talking about how the lower class people in france was cutting the upper social class peoples heads off.

  28. What happened in france made the slaves in St. domingue want to star fighting because they had no back up

  29. Elvira Rivera-Soto

    The revolution in france did a huge job helping out the rebellion in st. Domingue. If it wasn’t because in france they were cutting heads off the wealthy french, the french would have not escaped to St domingue, were the African slaves would see the french scared. And since now they cant call for help and there are more African slaves then White french… they are now dead meat.

  30. Michael Saavedra

    The wealthy people treated the poor like garbage so they had enough, so they started chopping off wealthy people heads off.

  31. How did revolution in France contribute to black people rebelling in St. Domingue? It contributed, because, the black people killed the wealthy and high class people, basically for Napoleon, and then Napoleon turns on the black people saying they have to go back to being slaves because Napoleon needs money to take over the world (he gone need the slaves to grow,pick,and clean the 2 most important cash crops for him to get money, Coffee and Sugar)

  32. The revolution is france caused the black people to rebel because they had the same amount of power and they didn’t want to be slaves again

  33. The revolution from France caused Black people to rebel in St. Domingue because they seen that they scared the wealthy that had power when they had almost nothing, It connected to them and they seen that things that seem impossible are possible so it motivated them to fight for their rights.

  34. The people in St.Domingue did the same thing because they didn’t want to keep being slaves they wanted to be free.

  35. It contributed in france because the french were already being killed in france and the french that were trying to run away from st domingue did not have anywhere to go.

  36. cristian garibay

    the revolution in france caused african slaves to be influenced and do the same things to the wealthy people that the poor french were doing to the wealthy people in french wich was to kill them or scare them away.

  37. the rich french were scared so that was a weakness for the french so the black slaves waited for the right time to strike

  38. Aamani Strother

    The Rebellion in france contributed because it made the mulatto and the slaves have confidence.

  39. The revolution contributed to the black people in St.Domingue because the slaves in St.Domingue knew that they rather die together to fight against slavery for freedom instead of being a slave rest of their generations.

  40. Jakala Muhammad

    The revolution in france contributed to black people rebelling in St.Domingue because people in france got tired of being treated unfairly and they knew that African slaves in St.Domingue were being treated unfairly so they decided to have one person from france go to all the slave plantation in haiti and spread the word that on August,15,1792 they were going to go against their slave masters at the same time and see where that gets them they had nothing to lose and were so tired of being forced to work long hours with no pay and barely and food. That actually got them very far over half the plantations in north haiti were taken over by slaves.

  41. It contributeded because the way black people were being treated too. They also saw how the french rebelled and made a revolution so they decided they were going to rebell too.

  42. I think because they were getting treated unfairly and they finally wanted to fight back.

  43. The wealthy people treat the black slaver unfair and some of the people treat unfair to their social class so they start to rebellion with them and the spain try to give them some weapons to fight the wealthy people in french.

  44. They were tired of being slaves so they fought back.

  45. The people in France began to fight the wealthy by cutting there heads so when the word spread about the french doing that the people in St.Domingue started to do the same to the slave owners because both of the places where treated badly so they fought back.

  46. Slaves were not treated fairly; also poor people were not treated fairly as well so most of the poor people were using the Guillotine to kill the wealthy people and i have seen different Guillotines. slaves also fought but didn’t have weapons, did they just pick it up from dead white/french

  47. The revolution in france cause the poor people to fight back the wealthy people because they were tired of being mistreated by the wealthy people

  51. They contributed because slaves were tired of being treated unfairly and it lead for them to fight the wealthy whites.

  52. The revolution in france caused black people to rebel in St. Domingue because in St. Domingue, black people were also getting treated badly and the poor people from france came along and told them that they were cutting off heads of the people who were in a higher class of them. The black people realized that they were in a higher class of the poor people, and decided to join them because they didn’t wanna have their heads cut off.

  53. Both places in France and in ST. Domingue had very poor people who then decided to chop off the heads of all the wealthy people. After the people in St. Domingue heard about the revolution in France, the poor people in St. Domingue also began to do the same thing because they all wanted to be free and have the same rights as the wealthy people.

  54. The revoultion in france caused what happend in ST. DOMINGUE for black people to rebel is because the wealthy people where afraid that the slave might do it to them cut off there heads so theywould do it to the slaves before they would do it to them .

  55. It caused the black people to rebel because how they were getting treated by the wealthy people and how they didn’t really feed them and how they made fun of

  56. The Revolution in France caused the African Slaves and mulattos in St.Domingue to rebel because it made them get an idea on how to fight back to get there freedom and because this made the wealthy people in St.Domingue get scared.

  57. they stated to mack the people mad how they started to eat food then throw it away then they just got to mad they kidnapped the welthe people and chop thar head off.

  58. Well since the word of the revolution was spread to St. Domingue, the slaves also wanted to fight back and scare the wealthy people. In that case, the Mulattos joined with the african slaves because since they were also wealthy, they didnt want to be killed.

  59. because they were not going to take it anymore after all the ears cut off the hamstrings and the skin ripped off so what they heard happening in france they did it in haiti

  60. They saw that other poor people in france were killing wealthy white french people and got the thought why don’t we kill wealthy white french people too if they can do it, why can’t we.

  61. The revolution in france help slaves by showing even if they have no money or power they can still fight against people who do have power or weapons.

  62. I think that revolution caused black people to rebel because maybe they thought that it was a good time to go against the wealthy people.

  63. Revolution in France caused what happened in haiti St. Domingue because there was an influence and some people like Toussaint L’Ouverture knew people from france and he lead the revolution of St. Domingue

  64. The revolution in France cause what happen in St. Domingue because they were slaves too and they had to revolutionise.If the poor people in France can have a revolution why couldn’t the slaves in St. Domingue do a revolution too.

  65. because they thought it was just nice… and the poor overthrew the wealthy so they thought they could do the same

  66. in 1791, the slaves and some free people of color of Saint-Domingue began waging a rebellion against French authority. The rebels became reconciled to French rule following the abolition of slavery in the colony in 1793

  67. It cause black people to rebel because they didn’t like how the wealthy people there was treating them either. So they thought we should do the same thing and maybe we’ll be free and we get to see the wealthy suffer like we do.
