Search over numerous datasets and reconstruct the lives of people involved in the historical slave trade. Browse interconnected data, generate visualizations, and explore short biographies of enslaved and freed peoples.
The primary focus of Enslaved.org is people—individuals who were enslaved, owned slaves, were connected to the slave trade, and worked to emancipate slaves. Read short biographical sketches about people associated with the historical slave trade–both prominent figures and also those lesser known. Presents the variety and scope of the lives of the enslaved through interactive, narrative biographies, written for student and general audiences. Enslaved.org is building an inclusive community of researchers and scholarly communications informed and guided by the principles of an ethical, anti-racist approach to the peoples of the historical slave trade and their descendants.
