York is launching the Harriet Tubman Resource Centre on the African Diaspora, a new digital library on slavery and the first of its kind. International scholars on the African slave trade will gather at York University September 12-13 to launch the global research centre on the history of Africans victimized by the slave trade. Named for the heroine who led many African Americans to freedom in Canada before the American Civil War, the Harriet Tubman Resource Centre will increase the accessibility of documentary evidence of the slave trade and the plight of enslaved Africans in the Americas and the Islamic world.
