Map by Saketh Mandayam

Undergraduate research assistant Saketh Mandayam created this experimental map using a snapshot of the New Jersey Slavery Records data as of March 2024. The map shows locations of birth, manumission, and freedom seeking events. It also visualizes population data by county using statistics from the 1800 U.S. Census. The Legend button is in the upper right corner, and it explains the meaning of the different symbols. You can use the Layer List button in the bottom right corner to hide or show different layers. Click any location to see details about events that took place there, including names, dates, and event description.
