Here you will find a collection of links to websites pertaining to slavery, abolition, and their legacies. The links are organized under two broad categories: Institutional Resources and Digital Databases. The former highlight prominent organizations and institutions, while the latter focus on digitized primary source material. The sites featured here represent only a small fraction of the vast amount of material available online and their inclusion does not constitute any special endorsement by Yale or the Gilder Lehrman Center.
RunawayCT.org is a digital humanities resource for the study of runaway slaves in Connecticut, conceived and executed by a Digital Humanities class at Wesleyan University. The site provides free access to a searchable database of runaway slave ads published in the Connecticut Courant, accompanied by scholarly content providing context and insight into slavery-era Connecticut.
