Recently, McGraw has been reading “Black Spartacus: The Epic Life of Toussaint Louverture” by Sudhir Hazareesingh. The biography tells the real-life story of Toussaint Louverture, a former slave in the late 1700s.
Louverture was a part of the French Caribbean colony Saint-Domingue (now modern-day Haiti). He successfully led a slave revolt against their oppressors. He also united the colony under his leadership and led Haiti to become an independent nation. But unfortunately for Louverture, he never saw that dream come true. During the early 1800s, French military forces captured him, and he died in prison.
On Twitter, McGraw shared the title of the biography with a pair of reading glasses. He also wrote, “Good read Fascinating!”
