WHO IS SOLITUDE ?                                                                Heritage and History of Guadeloupe

Born around 1772, Rosalie nicknamed the "mulatto Solitude" is the daughter of Bayangumay, an African slave, raped by a sailor on the boat that deported her to the West Indies.

She is a historical and emblematic figure of the resistance of Guadeloupean slaves. This term "mulatto" recalls her mixed origins. Solitude is separated from her mother when a colonist notices that she has fair skin and eyes; he made her a servant, a higher category in the hierarchy of slaves. She experienced the abolition of slavery in 1794 and joined a maroon community in Guadeloupe. A "brown" was the name given to a runaway slave. She fits into this community, which is located in Goyave and led by the Moudongue Sanga. When, by the law on the slave trade and the regime of the colonies of May 20, 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte reestablished slavery in the colonies, Solitude, then three months pregnant, rallied to the call for resistance of Louis Delgrès. of May 10, 1802, and fought alongside him for freedom. General Antoine Richepance, at the head of 3,500 men, received the mission of Napoleon Bonaparte to restore Lacrosse to his position as captain-general, to disarm all the soldiers of color, to deport the rebel officers and to restore discipline at home. former slaves. After several days of fighting, the colonial forces cornered three hundred resistance fighters in the fortified Anglemont habitation in Matouba. All hope lost, on May 28, Delgrès and his companions committed suicide with explosives. The survivors are executed.

Arrested, Solitude is sentenced to death and imprisoned. She was hanged the day after her delivery, November 29, 1802.
