Description: When Great Britain abolished slavery in 1833, sugar planters in the Caribbean found themselves facing the prospect of paying working wages to their former slaves. Cheaper labor existed elsewhere in the empire, however, and plantation owners. along with the home and colonial governments, quickly began importing the first of what would eventually be hundreds of thousands of indentured laborers from India. Through it all, the effects of slavery on the existing Afro-Creole population were ignored even as a labor hierarchy was being created and the attribution of racial, gendered, and cultural difference to Afro-Caribbeans and Indians was beginning.
