The history of slavery is long and expansive, touching almost every corner of the world and occurring from the beginning of written history and into the all-too-recent past. Every chapter of this horrid institution, from the slaveocracies of ancient Mesopotamia to the well-known events of the Atlantic slave trade, is a shameful but unavoidable part of human history. As hard to stomach as this part of our collective past is, stories of the numerous moments of revolt, rebellion, and hope that slowly pushed the world towards a greater realization of freedom are just as important as the countless stories of darkness and depravity. From the glorious victories of Spartacus to the historical Haitian Revolution that inspired an entire hemisphere, these stories remind us that where there is action there is hope.

Read on to learn about some of the most important and pivotal rebellions of enslaved people in history.
