Abstract

Using evidence from the legal archives in Nippes, this article analyzes the ethnic composition of the slaves who arrived in the French colony of Santo Domingo from 1720 to 1770. After the presentation of absolute figures, the analysis focuses on gender ratio, determining that men outnumbered women by about two to one throughout most of the eighteenth century. The conclusion suggests the need for collaboration between historians dealing with plantations in the Americas and those dealing with Africa.
