Overview

UPA_s series, Papers of the American Slave Trade, provides scholars with access to primary source material on the business aspect of the trade in human beings. The collection documents the international slave trade in Britain_s New World colonies and the United States from 1718 to the trade_s demise after 1808. Series A focuses on the importation of slaves from Africa_the financial concerns and risk factors, slave treatment and slave revolts on transoceanic voyages, the effect of legislation on the trade, regional origins and destinations of captives, the Caribbean economy in American colonial times, the related molasses and rum trade, and a great deal more. The papers of other Rhode Islanders with slave trade connections appear in Part 2. These businessmen lived in Providence and Newport as well as Bristol, which was a center of the African trade in later years, until the 1808 congressional ban on slave importing.
