Princeton and Slavery

Getting ready to teach a digital history course on the trans-Atlantic slave trade in the spring, the director of our public history program here at KSU brought this amazing research project to my attention: https://www.princeton.edu/news/2017/11/06/princeton-research-project-explores-past-ties-slavery

Princeton is my home town, and the university has a long and complex history with regards to racial politics.  It is exciting to see such path-breaking work coming from the history faculty and students at Princeton.  I will certainly use this work as an example in my class in the spring.
