Is there a project or group that manages USA slave profiles?

I am noticing as I work my way up my family tree in Georgia that I find slave named in wills .  It occurred to me that someone or group on Wikitree may be making an attempt at tracking them in an attempt to help their descendants.

Yes, there is a group on WikiTree.  yes

Check out the African-American Project.  Project members do encourage documentation of slaves named in censuses or wills.

The Slave Owners categories, such as Georgia Slave Owners, are one mechanism that's been used to help make it possible to find information on slaves.
