This historic and important book: Rice and Slaves: Ethnicity and the Slave Trade in Colonial South Carolina, by Daniel C. Littlefield is a gem for historians. During long period of American history, the notion that Africans had made any contribution to American civilization was regarded, with rare exceptions, as inconceivable. The slaves has at least been recognized as having arrived not naked of culture, but equipped to be an active participant in the task of America colonization, fully capable of giving as well as receiving. South Carolina planters were greatly concerned about the ethnic origin, skills and character of their servile African population.
