BREAKING THE SILENCE
The Transatlantic Slave Trade Education Project (TST)


The ASPnet Transatlantic Slave Trade (TST) Project was launched in 1998 to break the silence surrounding the Transatlantic Slave Trade and to enable young people to fully comprehend the past, understand the present and prepare a better future together in a world free of all types of stereotypes, enslavement, injustice, discrimination and prejudice.

The TST project aims to improve the teaching of history by telling the whole story of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. The project emphasizes the significance of the TST, the suffering it caused and its social, cultural and economic impact on the Atlantic world.

It is the first international endeavour to mobilize schools in Africa, the Americas / Caribbean and Europe to develop new educational approaches while promoting an intercultural dialogue between young people.
