This chapter introduces the theoretical stakes of the book, juxtaposing C.L.R. James’s work on the Haitian Revolution with Bertolt Brecht’s Messingkauf Dialogues: It argues that Haitian Revolution performances should be thought by way of Brecht’s category “Imitations I Can Use.” This chapter concludes with a long theoretical excursus on the problem of self-determination in the thought of Hegel, Amiri Baraka, and C.L.R. James.

Keywords:   Haitian Revolution, imitations, C.L.R. James, Amiri Baraka, Hegel
