Overview

An examination of the trans-oceanic migration of West Indians from the Caribbean to Sierra Leone in the decades following the abolition of slavery in the British colonies in 1807. The West Indians who immigrated to Sierra Leone during this period came to occupy many positions in the colonial government of the colony, and, in time, they were an important (although not always well-liked) minority. The book looks at the historical development of this group, how they helped establish the colony of Sierra Leone, and the reasons for their influence and power.
