Slave Manifests are records of slaves shipped to New Orleans from other American ports, which give information on the slave, the owner, the ship's manifest, and captain.

The Manifest of Charles Green was given as a gift to Ashley Scott from her aunt who also has an intense interest in discovering the family's genealogy. The artist's works consider her own family ancestry infused with pivotal moments in African American history.
