Up-date on website: THE ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE AND SLAVE LIFE IN THE
AMERICAS: A VISUAL RECORD.
This searchable collection of 1,275 images continues to be revised and
corrected on a regular basis. Since the last up-date report in August
2007, corrections and modifications have been made to already existing
entries, but new images have been added, particularly on the U.S. South
and West Africa in the nineteenth century. The latter include 22
unique, unpublished drawings and watercolors of social life,
settlements, and material culture along West African coastal areas,
particularly Liberia and what is today Equatorial Guinea (Corisco
Island). These materials are held by the Department of Special
Collections of the University of Virginia Library
