Abstract

A comprehensive website on the Trans-Atlantic and Intra-American Slave Trade between 1514 and 1866. Databases on slave voyages and names of African captives are completed with image galleries, interactive maps and timelines of the slave trade. The digital memorial raises questions about the largest slave trades in history and offers access to the documentation available to answer them. European colonizers turned to Africa for enslaved laborers to build the cities and extract the resources of the Americas. They forced millions of Africans across the Atlantic to the Americas, and from one part of the Americas to another. Analyze these slave trades and view interactive maps, timelines, and animations to see the dispersal in action.
