20th Anniversary of Barbados Carolina Connection Week of Activities

In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Barbados Carolina Connection, the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA) and the Barbados and The Carolinas Legacy Foundation are hosting a special Week of Activities.

Barbados is known as the only colony to have founded another colony. When Barbados was still a colony of Britain, Barbadian set sail from Speightstown to the United States, and founded the colony of the Carolinas. Thus, historically Barbados played a major role in the settlement of the Americas, and was also described as the springboard for demographic movement in the colonization of the Americas. Approximately 7 to 10 million Americans can trace their roots to Barbados. The historical significance of Barbados is explored in part through genealogy tourism.

The week of activities has been designed to increase awareness for the historical and cultural ties between Barbados, South Carolina, North Carolina, and even Georgia.
