Transatlantic Slave Trade: Online Data Base & Talk of Nation Interview

Here's a great episode of Talk of the Nation about the transatlantic slave trade.

 The hosts interview the author of a book called Atlas of the Transatlantic Save Trade by David Eltis and David Richardson.

David Eltis also created an online data base of the slave voyages.

Both the interview and the online data base might be interesting to adapt for students.   The online data base includes some terrific maps as well as lesson plans.
