Introduction -- History 201 introduces undergraduates to the early history of the peoples of Africa, with emphasis on "Black" Africa south of the Sahara.
The 1,280 images in this collection have been selected from a wide range of sources, most of them dating from the period of slavery. This collection is envisioned as a tool and a resource that can be used by teachers, researchers, students, and the general public - in brief, anyone interested in the experiences of Africans who were enslaved and transported to the Americas and the lives of their descendants in the slave societies of the New World. We would like to emphasize that little effort is made to interpret the images and establish the historical authenticity or accuracy of what they display.
