About this deal

We have the perfect Ladies’s apparel and merchandise to show your support for Jamaica National Team here at Kitbag.

In this central port of the newly acquired colony, women "carved out opportunities for themselves" (28).

In particular, Walker examines the critical early period in Jamaican colonization that changed the island into a wealthy colony in the growing British Empire.

My first book, Jamaica Ladies: Female Slaveholders and the Creation of Britain's Atlantic Empire (University of North Carolina Press, 2020), is the first systematic study of the free and freed women who perpetuated chattel slavery and reaped its profits in the early modern era. These allowed free women to take advantage of a rare set of opportunities, including the acquisition of captive workers, and helped sustain the economic activities that were essential to the creation of the eighteenth-century British Atlantic empire.Jamaica placed in Group C with Italy, Australia and Brazil, and was considered as a underdog, being rated the lowest in the group. Show your pride at the next match or add a touch of team flair to your daily wardrobe with officially licensed Ladies’s Jamaica National Team gear from Kitbag! Starting in the 1670s, a surprisingly large and diverse group of women helped secure English control of Jamaica and, crucially, aided its developing and expanding slave labour regime by acquiring enslaved men, women, and children to protect their own tenuous claims to status and independence. At Kitbag, we know that being a fan of a football club often means following the movements of players.

She states, "The town's growth and stability depended as much on the women who remained ashore as it did on the men who climbed aboard ships and ventured out to sea" (72). The book ends with the tale of Mary Rose, another free woman of color, driving a small carriage through the streets of Jamaica’s seat of government, Spanish Town, during the 1750s.
