Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, United Kingdom of Great Britain, Anguilla, Montserrat - The West India Committee collection

The West India Committee (WIC) collection is a unique documentary heritage crucial to the comprehension of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, providing insight into many unacknowledged innovations, institutions and inventions derived directly from the trade. Its archival collection enhances the historiography and general understanding of the contribution made by West Indians to the development of the global economy, and civil society.
