Darnell Davis is a prominent white plantation owner and slaveholder in Barbados, who purchases both Abena and Yao and pairs the two of them together. He is a hateful man, who mistreats his wife Jennifer, and who torments the enslaved people on his land with constant work and violence. After he tries to assault Abena and she fights back, Darnell has her publicly hanged. Later, when Darnell returns to England, he separates all of the enslaved families on his plantation. In his cruelty, Darnell embodies white violence and disregard for Black life and connection.
