A2: I want to thank for this question (we developed them together). Talking about how we as teachers fail or need to improve is difficult. I know that for many years my teaching of these Revolutions focused far more on white, European men. /1

A2: I used to spend twice as much time on the French & US Revolutions than the Latin American & Haitian Revolutions. 3 years ago I began to focus more on Haiti and talking about the role of African peoples. Now I’m trying to integrate indigenous peoples more /2

Agree, I can present examples of women in American and French. Am lacking for Haiti and rest of L America.

We can start with Maneula Sáenz, called the “liberator of the liberator” by Simon Bolívar, also her lover. She isn’t credited the same way Bolívar was, but my past textbook did mention her in passing, so I looked more and incorporated her into the narrative

She was reinterred in 2010 to be buried next to Bolívar, and here’s a bio of her (I’ve only read excerpts, not the whole)
