Interactive demo:

History - New York Times 1619 Project

Try it out in Atlasphere!


In the New York Times Magazine feature, They Sold Human Beings Here, you can read an historical account of slave trading in the United States, with photographs of some locations where this occurred. A visual representation of the geographic locations is not included. You can easily imagine how a live Atlasphere embedding could add important context to the feature. In this demonstration, the tag, “They Sold Human Beings Here,” binds the sites together in a custom view.

As the Times requests additional sites from knowledgable readers, the Atlasphere map could grow as these are documented over time.
