Antigua was first colonized by the British in 1632, then run as a sugar colony. Local slaves died by the thousand so African slaves were imported as a more sustainable substitute. Antiguan slaves were freed in 1834 without having to experience the further 4 years of apprenticeship applied in other colonies.
