Less than two months after writing the book, “Jean-Jacques Dessalines: Words beyond the Grave,” Jean Sénat Fleury took his pen to write another historical novel still based on the history of Santo Domingo time of the French colony — but this time, in a much larger dimension.

Written at a time when discrimination and racism are the most serious scourge facing modern society, “Toussaint Louverture: The Trial of the Slave Trafficking” (published by Xlibris) comes at the right moment to awaken the global conscience on the wrongs of slavery and the need to fight its atrocities that still exist in the present day.

The book is an imaginary narrative supported by historical facts and written in a clear and concise romantic style. Fleury invents a fictitious trial against Napoléon Bonaparte and several other actors involved in the slave trafficking while focusing on the wrongs of slavery from the 15th century to the beginning of the 19th century. By placing Toussaint Louverture, who initiated the Haitian Revolution of 1804, as the main hero of this historical novel, the author carries a message in which he affirms that the desire to restore dignity must become a human passion.

With the publication of “Toussaint Louverture: The Trial of the Slave Trafficking,” Fleury seeks to make the reader aware of the practice of modern slavery and domesticity. He hopes it will serve as an information and training book — a reference book that could be read and used as an educational tool on slavery.
