Webinar on Danish Caribbean / Women Labor Leaders

Fireburn was an important event in the history of St. Croix, today one of the US Virgin Islands and, in 1878, one of the Danish territories in the Caribbean. It was a revolt by laborers (previously slaves) that were pursuing better working conditions and among whose leaders three women stood up. These women have been known as the “Queens of Fireburn”.
