From the website: “The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database has information on almost 35,000 slaving voyages that forcibly embarked over 10 million Africans for transport to the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries. It offers researchers, students and the general public a chance to rediscover the reality of one of the largest forced movements of people in world history.”
Researchers can search the Voyages database, examine estimates of the slave trade, explore the African names database. There are maps, images, lesson plans and web resources. Sponsors of the project are Emory University, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute at Harvard University.
