DIHS: “The Barbados and Carolinas Model – Shared Influences”

February 16, 2023

Join the Daniel Island Historical Society as they unpack fascinating new chapters about the Barbados-Carolinas connection. Our island’s namesake Robert Daniell, born in England in 1646, was a captain of ships that traveled between London, Barbados, and Charles Towne before settling on Daniel Island. Guest speaker Rhoda Green will explore the “Barbados Model” constructed in Barbados by the British and then transported elsewhere. This model was effectively utilized and produced massive wealth for both Barbados and the Carolinas. We’re familiar with the names, portraits, and images of many early settlers who settled in Barbados and Charleston. But we are unfamiliar with the enslaved who made the “Barbados Model” work while being the ones the model was constructed to maintain and constrain. Green will give us all a new vantage point to expand on our shared story.
