I just wanted to post a quick message to welcome everyone coming over to the site thanks to the incredibly gracious tweet from Lin Manuel-Miranda (found here: https://twitter.com/Lin_Manuel/status/664503464215584768).
This site was put together by students from Marywood University in my HIST 399 course from the Spring 2015 semester, Slavery and Abolition in the Atlantic World. The students deserve all of the credit for the good work on this site, I served as site editor and moderator, providing guidance and suggestions to student authors. Amazing that so many of you found this little corner of the web today, but I truly hope you find the students’ work to be of value in finding out about this most complex, oft-contradictory and fundamentally important topic.
And if anyone wants to buy my class Hamilton tickets…I absolutely would not say no.
