From Slave Labor to Tourism Dollars: An autoethnographic look at the Highbourne Cay Plantation
Author(s): Ayondela McDole
This project is an autoethnographic examination into the Highbourne Cay Plantation turned luxury resort set within the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Using Pan-African theory with a Marxist lens, McDole sets out to outline the ways in which economic, social and political patterns on the cay have their roots in slavery discourse through its tourism labor. McDole explains how the social constructs of slave labor has a social impact on the island's economy and theorizes that while formal enslavement is a part of the past for the island class struggle is an essential part of its tourism discourse in 21st century.
