Links

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 ESSSS project, directed by Jane Landers and administered at Vanderbilt University, preserves and digitalizes endangered ecclesiastical and secular documents related to slavery in the Americas. While most of the documents contained here belong to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, there are also some Cuban documents from the sixteenth century and Brazilian documents from the seventeenth.
