This collection is a compilation of published accounts in all languages by African slave ship survivors who told others something about their lives in their homelands or in the places they were taken after enslavement throughout the Atlantic World. Whereas most scholars believe less than twenty such accounts exist, we have found nearly five hundred. Of those, 280 accounts were not previously available online.

These accounts are referenced in Five Hundred African Voices: A Catalog of Published Accounts by Africans Enslaved in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, 1586-1936.
