Slavery during Colonization Period

This is a picture where a Black woman is being marked with a hot iron just like a horse during the slavery period in Saint Domingue, now Haiti.

Haiti is still suffered from the period of slavery that was established under French colonial rule. Under the slavery period, the mulatto descendants became the elite in Haiti after the revolution. The division between the Haitian Mulato and the Black was already in strong. Many of the mulato used their social privileges to acquire wealth, and land. During the colonization period, white masters used brutal methods to terrorize the slaves and keep them powerless.
