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.

This student-developed project begins with a database of around 1900 Beacon Hill/West End African-Americans from 1848-1855, using city directories, the 1850 federal census, and Boston city tax records. These names are then linked with almost 500 sources from The Liberator which have been cataloged and digitized.
