Example text

In Jérémie, in the Grande Anse, whites imprisoned local free men of color on a ship in the harbor and deliberately infected them with smallpox; only a third of them survived. The West and South Provinces became divided into a jigsaw puzzle of regions, some of them controlled by whites and others by free men of color. The breakdown of authority in these regions allowed slaves in some areas to stage their own insurrections. In contrast to the situation in the north, however, these slave revolts did not coalesce into a movement with recognized leaders capable of controlling a large area.

From the 1760s onward, however, official policy and white colonists’ attitudes became increasingly prejudicial toward the free people of color. The French government calculated that maintaining a clear separation between whites and non-whites would prevent the colony’s free population from uniting to resist metropolitan authority. A series of laws attempted to limit new manumissions and banned free people of color from entering a long list of professions, including medicine and law, or from wearing fancy clothing and jewelry.

5 Prosperous planters built large houses on their plantations and filled them with expensive furnishings imported from Europe. Freed from having to do any physical labor themselves, the colonists were known for their hospitality and their lavish spending. Merchants in the colony’s cities enriched themselves through supplying these wealthy customers, many of whom spent most of their time in town or left to live in France, leaving hired managers or gérants to run their properties. Critics of the slavery system blamed these managers, whose main interest was to accumulate as much money as possible for themselves, in the hopes of either buying their own plantations or of returning to France with their profits, for treating the slaves harshly and skimming off money that should have been spent on their care.
