The history of Barbados, an eastern Caribbean island, directly relates to the idea of freedom and movement throughout the world. In our research, we highlight Barbados’ specific history between the late 1600s through the early 1800s to represent three main ideas regarding slavery and travel: the history leading up to Bussa’s Rebellion (1816), the events surrounding the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, and the Triangular Trade Route.
