Which of the following is true of eighteenth-century slavery in South Carolina and Georgia?
a. The laws in those colonies created a very static institution with few differences between plantations, small farms, and cities.
b. Plantation slaves enjoyed far more autonomy than they did in other colonies, allowing them to maintain more of their African culture.
c. Because of the high death rates of Africans due to malaria, slave populations declined by 5 to 10 percent per decade during the 1700s.
d. Because the governments of South Carolina and Georgia strictly enforced laws preventing sexual contact between whites and blacks, a significant population of racially mixed individuals never developed.
e. Colonial law gave freedom to any slave who successfully escaped to Charleston or Savannah.
