After six years of planning, artist Dread Scott is staging the German coast uprising of the January 8, 1811 that involved 200 to 500 people to “reenact the largest slave rebellion in American history.

Dressed in period costumes and holding machetes or rifles they will march 26 miles (42 kilometers) over two days from the sugar plantation country along the Mississippi River to the New Orleans suburbs.”
