Anti-Slavery International has produced resources that help teach, raise awareness and encourage the study of the Transatlantic Slave Trade or Maafa.

Breaking the Silence

This site aims to help teachers and educators to Break the Silence that continues to surround the story of the enslavement of Africa that began over 500 years ago. Designed to provide teachers with a variety of resources and ideas about how to teach the subject holistically, accurately and truthfully. It contains downloadable classroom activities, online slave routes, and links to many other resources.

Recovered Histories

Subtitled Reawakening the narratives of enslavement, resistance and the fight for freedom , Anti-Slavery International has digitised its collection of 18th and 19th century literature on the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Recovered Histories captures the narratives of the enslaved, enslavers, slave ship surgeons, abolitionists, parliamentarians, clergy, planters and rebels. We encourage the use of this archive of 40,000 pages to help further the understanding of this period of history that still affects us today. The site also contains context pages, an education pack, a timeline and a knowledge test.
