New Tulane Libraries Collaborative Exhibit

The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) is pleased to share our first-ever collaborative online exhibit, “Enslaved People in the Southeast.” The exhibit commemorates the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans sold into bondage in the English Colonies.  The exhibit includes materials from 33 ASERL member libraries and three libraries that are members of the HBCU Library Alliance, including auction records and other bills of sale, plantation records, materials from the abolitionist movement, and photographs and other items from the Jim Crow South.

Materials contributed by Tulane University Libraries include an 1814 William C.C. Claiborne document, an 1863 order by General G. F. Shepley requiring free access to all formerly enslaved persons on Louisiana plantations, an 1842 deed recording the sale of two enslaved persons by Citizens Bank, and an 1839 sale of fifteen enslaved persons by Josiah Gray to Ann Maria, his emancipated housekeeper.


  1. Hi

    I also have interest in this. My search for this is finally over! Could be telling a whole lot more on this!


      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
