Research Tools: A New Digital Resource on the History of Slavery at the University of Georgia
From the U. of Georgia Library:
On These Grounds: Slavery and the University of Georgia, a new digital resource available through the Hargrett Library, highlights the role of slavery on campus and the lives of the enslaved as documented in University Archives, Digital Library of Georgia, and other Libraries resources. This project is part of a nationwide collaboration for universities to identify and describe records of slavery on their campuses and was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
This resource builds upon the research developed by faculty involved in the History of Slavery at UGA Project (HSUGA), a multidisciplinary, community-centered project that seeks to uncover stories of the enslaved African Americans who labored on campus from its founding to 1865.
This project is led by the Hargrett Library, HSUGA faculty, Digital Library of Georgia, and Wilson Center Digital Humanities Lab.
