ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors affecting the changing labor force and race relations in Virginia from 1660-1710. The changes in the slave community were more complex than stated in several studies. Language became major barrier between U.S. workers and the thousands of new African American immigrants in the state. The immigration of Africans in Virginia also affected the relationship between African Americans and U.S. people. Hence, early in the 18th century, Governor Alexander Spotswood implemented regulations concerning the need for stricter controls over the labor force.
