Dan Rasmussen, the author of "American Uprising, the Untold Story of America's Largest Slave Revolt," tells the story of this deeply covered up slave rebellion in 1811 - how it took shape, how it was
fought, the savage repression against the rebellious slaves and its significance for today.

In an excerpt from his recorded talk on "Communism and Jeffersonian Democracy," Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, talks about the myth of Jefferson's ideal society and the
reality of slavery that provided its backbone and continues to influence and shape America as we know it today.
