“Slavery and the South Carolina Rice Plantation”
Dr. Daniel C. Littlefield, Professor Emeritus of History at the University of South Carolina
Dr. Littlefield served as Carolina Professor of History and director of the institute for African American Research at the University of South Carolina. He is the author of Rice and Slaves: Ethnicity and the Slave Trade in Colonial South Carolina and Revolutionary Citizens: African Americans 1776-1804. Dr. Littlefield is also the guest curator for the SCHS exhibit, “Africa to America: The Plantation Culture of Early South Carolina,” which will open in the spring. Littlefield’s lecture will focus on the various African ethnic groups that were transported to America as slaves, how particular groups were preferred by South Carolina planters because of their experience working with rice cultivation, and the cultural contributions that they made to plantation life.
