New Christians/"New Whites"

Sephardic Jews, Free People of Color, and Citizenship in French Saint-Domingue, 1760–1789

THE CASE OF SAINT-DOMINGUE'S SEPHARDIM illustrates that the story of Jews in Europe's expansion westward is about more than the survival or mutation of deeply rooted family traditions. Old World questions about Jewish political identity did not disappear in the Americas. Rather, these persistent issues forced colonists and their children born in the New World to reconcile European philosophies with American conditions. In the case of the largest slave colony in the Caribbean, Saint-Domingue's Jews helped translate emerging French nationalism into an attack on racial prejudice that eventually produced the Haitian revolution. By raising complex issues of national identity and citizenship in French America after 1763, Sephardic merchants and planters provided a model for another group whose place in colonial society was equally ambiguous: Saint-Domingue's free people of color.
