Are you looking for primary sources in African American Studies? Take a look at Voyages, a Trans-Atlantic Slaving Voyage database. According to the site, "The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database is the culmination of several decades of independent and collaborative research by scholars drawing upon data in libraries and archives around the Atlantic world. The Voyages website itself is the product of two years of development by a multi-disciplinary team of historians, librarians, curriculum specialists, cartographers, computer programmers, and web designers, in consultation with scholars of the slave trade from universities in Europe, Africa, South America, and North America."
You can search for specific voyages, voyages sailed under certain country flags, vessel name and much more. The database includes images, essays and maps, as well as very useful lesson plans for ideas on how to incorporate the database in to an educational program.
