"The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database has information on almost 36,000 slaving voyages that forcibly embarked over 10 million Africans for transport to the Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. The actual number is estimated to have been as high as 12.5 million. The database and the separate estimates interface offer researchers, students and the general public a chance to rediscover the reality of one of the largest forced movements of peoples in world history."

I would like to direct your attention to the following webinar via the Digital Library of the Caribbean, which set to take place next Tuesday 4/11 at 11am EST. This session focuses on the digital history project A Colony in Crisis (https://colonyincrisis.lib.umd.edu), which features English language translations of 18th century colonial pamphlets from Saint-Domingue covering topics from economics, to slavery, to legal history.
We hope that you will join us.
