Slavery Era Insurance Registry

Provided by the California Department of Insurance, the Slavery Era Insurance Registry identifies over a half dozen insurance companies who issued and benefited from slavery era policies. The recently released report contains over 60 pages of charts listing the names of over 600 slaves and more than 400 slave owners. Although the registry offers clues into the lives of many slaves and their owners, it lists many slaves by their first name only, making it difficult to properly identify individual persons. However, for the advocates of slavery reparations, the report provides concrete evidence that could advance their efforts by identifying those companies who directly profited from the trafficking of slaves. For interested viewers, the report is available in HTML and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) formats.
