Slave sales--Jesuits

Description

A web-based timeline graphic of the Maryland Jesuits' sale of the people they owned. This timeline spans a half-century, from the first discussions among the Maryland Catholic clergy about selling their human property in 1813 to the first documentation of members of the GU272 community as newly emancipated people in Louisiana in 1864. This timeline was assembled in the summer of 2019 by Georgetown SFS student Alana Hendy from archival materials on the Georgetown Slavery Archive, using the Timeline JS platform from Knight Lab, with the generous assistance of Mary Beth Corrigan, Megan Martinsen and other staff at Georgetown's Lauinger Library.
