This chapter illuminates the various ways that black Carolinians stood at the center of South Carolina’s colonial state-building process. It does by first considering the developmental policies and practices of the provincial government. The chapter argues that slaves were essential to this governing praxis, both as infrastructural laborers, but also as the objects around which governing discourse was structured.
