Question
Hello. My friend and I are currently working on an national project known as National History Day, or NHD. Our topic is Tituba in the Salem Witch Trials, and we are looking for background information on her. I would love it if you could give me some! Thanks SO much!

Answer
Hi Macey,

Tituba was a slave, so there were relatively few written records maintained about her life other than her involvement in the Salem Witch trials.  You can find a good summary of what is known here:
