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 Harriet Tubman Institute is dedicated to capturing, studying, and telling the story of the migration of African peoples around the globe, from centuries ago to the present day. They search the world for materials that help them know and understand this history – from official and personal documents to photographs, interviews and maps. Using leading-edge digital technology, they preserve and make these accessible to anyone with an interest in seeing and learning from this rich store of information. As an institute of scholars, they also conduct an extensive program of research, publication, and post-graduate studies.
