Mapping Marronage is an interactive visualization of the trans-Atlantic networks of intellectual, creative and political exchange created by enslaved people in the 18th and 19th century. It traces the geographic reach, crossings and intersections of letters, testimonies and financial exchanges by enslaved people of African-descent. Special recognition to Research Assistants: Logan Murphy and Rachel Willis, and student collaborators from “Mapping the French Atlantic,” University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 2018 and 2021.
