Dear Friends,

I have bookmarked SLAVERY LINKS:

Scroll down (about 3/4 of the way to the bottom of the page) to the section
of AFRICAN HISTORY, then scroll down some more to SLAVERY.

I am collecting bookmarks, if anyone would like to contribute.
In fact, AASG, I have bookmarked your home page.
Please advise if this is not ok.
