  • I really enjoyed watching your video. It was really informative, and did a great job of setting the background. I had not realized that Irish settlers and indentured were used before the slaves. It is crazy that so many, upwards of 400,000 Africans, were brought to Barbados. Furthermore, I had not realized that the codes were meant to be good for both the slaves and the slave owners, but unfortunately that did not happen.
