SLAVE VOYAGES

The Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans. Educational Resource material developed for the TST Project.

Though recent decades have seen an explosion in academic publications on the slave trade, comprehensive accounts of a general nature are still not readily available for educational purposes, contributing to the silence around the trade that the UNESCO project seeks to break. Increasing the availability of teaching materials on the slave trade should, therefore, be an important part of the UNESCO project.

This text sets out the general history of the transatlantic slave trade, providing an interpretative overview of the literature. Such a broad approach may not satisfy the needs of every student, yet it is hoped that it will encourage students to reflect further on the issues at stake, as well as to read other, more specialized works of research.
