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.
The Law in Slavery and Freedom
The Law in Slavery and Freedom Project is a curricular and research initiative that has been developed in collaboration with The Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, France; the University of Cologne, Germany; the University of Campinas, Brazil; the University of Windsor, Ontario, Canada; and the Centro Juan Marinello in Havana, Cuba. Students from these institutions have participated in seminars taught by faculty from all sites and continue to exchange ideas through online discussions of readings on the topic of law and slavery in the Atlantic world.
