What is this?Edit
In this picture two black people (ladies) were picking fruits for some other lady and it looks like the lady that they are picking the fruits for doesn't want it right now. The women are dress poorly and the lady they are picking the fruits for is dressed high class(in their time the way she was dressed was high class).The two African ladies look kind of jealous at the lady dressed nice because it looks liked she is a free slave meaning that the lady is a mulatto (a mix of black and white). If you look at it the lady that is dressed high class is lighter and the two African ladies selling fruits and vegatables are much darker. They are also mad because she is not a slave and they are.
The "free" lady looks pregnant. Maybe that or she's fat because she actually has something to eat unlike the other women that have to work just to get some bread. They have to work period, because they are slaves.
What do we know about it?Edit
Because people they were from Spain had higher class than people who came two spain. And this waz also a part of the Barbados Slave Code of 1661. This code waz the English legal code set up 2 provide a legal base of the Caribbean island of Bardados. It also required the slave owners the requirement two dress their slaves the way they wanted too. They also have slave vendors to sell and make their money.
