Students will be guided through a series of hands-on activities with historical sources and museum artifacts to aid and deepen their understanding of transatlantic slavery.

Students will work in five separate groups to explore key topics including forced migration, enslavement on the plantation, resistance as well as abolition. Students will be encouraged to discuss and present their findings, and consider how they connect to contemporary issues such as racism.
