Toussaint Louverture is the long- awaited, two-part epic film, depicting the life of the Haitian leader. Louverture led the first successful slave revolt in world history, defeating Napoleon Bonaparte and winning independence from France. Known for his military genius and political acumen, Louverture established Haiti as the first black nation in the western hemisphere and the first Black free nation as well. The success of Louverture and the Haitian Revolution rocked the institution of slavery throughout the "New World" of the Americas.

 

The two parts French epic film (with English subtitles), Toussaint Louverture won three prizes at the 2012 Pan African Film Festival in LA - Best Feature Narrative, an Audience Award for Narrative Feature and the Best Actor award for Jean-Louis' portrayal of the Haitian revolutionist.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
