Jamaican Slave Relations Regarding The Commodity of Sugar

John Youngquist, Joe Heiner, Keegan Kayala, Xilin Zhang

This podcast is based off the article titled Home Grown Slaves by Sasha Turner. The podcast is in the form of a skit where two sugar plantation owners have met up to discuss the current economic stance of Jamaica. During this time the Jamaican economy was on a decline because of the lack of slaves after the ending of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. While discussing what should be done to help their plantations a slave is called into the conversation to give insight into what work is like as a pregnant sugar slave.
