About this Database:

This database makes accessible to the public all available information pertaining to the enslaved men and women who built and sustained Oak Alley. It brings to light attributes of personhood including names, origins and relationships, and presents them simultaneously with the marks of slavery that dehumanized--such as appraised value. Together, it is our aim to offer a resource for students and researchers, and enable them to better understand the people of one specific sugar plantation.
