March as a Re-Enactor in the Largest Rebellion of the Enslaved
You can be one of 500 re-enactors on November 8-9, to retrace the path of the largest slave rebellion in U.S. history, and embody the facts of our resistance, fight for freedom, and revolutionary action.
Slave Rebellion Reenactment is a community-engaged artist performance and film production that will reimagine the German Coast Uprising of 1811, which took place just outside of New Orleans. Slave Rebellion Reenactment will re-create our ancestors' plans to organize and seize Orleans Territory, to fight not just for their own emancipation, but to end slavery, and to create a new government.
Re-enactors will walk between 4 and 26 miles, over the 2-day period, ending with a celebration in Congo Square.
