In the 1790s, the son of an aristocratic white father and a black slave woman became a charismatic French general who for a time rivaled Napoleon himself, and afterward languished in an Italian dungeon. His story inspired the novel “The Count of Monte Cristo,” written by his son, Alexandre Dumas, who also drew upon his father’s adventures in “The Three Musketeers.”

“Demonstrations are not designed to make people like the people who are demonstrating. Demonstrations are designed to be inconvenient. They’re designed to be in the way, so that we can stop ignoring something that we’ve grown too comfortable with.”
