The Slave Rebellion Reenactment of the German Coast Uprising of 1811 gets underway along the Mississippi Friday, November 8. Dread Scott’s project, six years in the making, will feature hundreds of actors recalling the historical impact of the rebellion. Numerous community agencies are involved, and the reeenactment is only a piece of the project’s lifespan.
