White gold, they called it, the salt that made white men rich and black slaves wretched with a horrendous plight beyond all suffering in the salt pans of Grand Turk. Today the pans spread out their reddish waters across this small Caribbean island off the north coast of Haiti, virtually unused. There's a little museum by the edge of one of these brackish ponds in the centre of the island -- the White Gold Building. It's a newish building in colonial style with an exhibition on Bermuda Sloops, used in the salt industry in the 18th and 19th centuries.
White Gold, Black Slaves, Red Blood: Countless Years a Slave on the Looney Front
The Massive, Overlooked Role of Female Slave Owners - HISTORY
The Man from Deep River , the first of the Italian cannibal movies, concerned the experiences of a Western man whom circumstance forced to live among the stone-age tribesmen of the tropical rainforest. The movie unfolds as a series of flashbacks within flashbacks, a structure which I will largely ignore in my synopsis, although it does add a bit of freshness to what would otherwise be an extremely derivative film. But tragedy strikes when Katherine, her parents, and her aunt and uncle get past the last outpost of civilization. Moneybags never gets to enjoy his gift, however, because Katherine is a virgin, and the Guainira who artificially deflower their girls at a very young age as a rite of passage observe a taboo on copulating with women who still have hymens. I think you may have some idea where this is going. Over time, she will also gradually come to realize the level of indulgence with which Umukai treats her, and to grasp the depth of feeling that motivates it.
