what is the appropriate place to post slave owner information

Is there a website or research forum to post the information found about enslaved people and slave owners in white family tree sources to help African America genealogy projects. I have found wills in which enslaved people were passed on. It may be as limited as a name and age but linked with the owner's name, date and location, it may help break down a brick wall.

You may want to check out the US black heritage project here: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:US_Black_Heritage

If you add some tags to your post you will get the attention of members with experience in this area.

So a few suggestions for networking

Facebook if DNA related at Enslaved and Enslavers Ancestors DNA Project

There is an interesting research project around the Caribbean https://www.ucl.ac.uk/

I have posted stuff at sites devoted to the Caribbean and to Georgian Genealogy.

Most of the enslaved who were fathered by their enslavers have some pretty remarkable genealogy.

I have had biracial aunts uncles and cousins since the late 18th century.  

Wills are a very interesting resource

According to stats there were at least 80,000 slave owners in the UK and colonies
