LIC’s Slavery-Felated Collection Microfilmed

Published: May 22nd, 2000

Category: News Briefs

Smathers Libraries has announced funding of a $1.2 million grant proposal to microfilm materials in “Southern Culture and Heritage.” Microfilming begins this summer, and will include texts from the law school’s Legal Information Center’s collection relating to slavery in the American South published as pamphlets or small monographs, including essays, tracts, sermons and literary works. The publications were among the first voices for abolition of slavery in the Americas, and will add a special perspective to the grant, because they document the international context of American slavery. Principally British, they also include Brazilian, Dutch, French and Spanish materials documenting the supply of slaves and showing the institution of American slavery to be very much a part of Caribbean and colonial economics.
