I don't think so, more Ethiopid
Yes, more Aethiopid than anything else though more on the Negroid side of this type.
The typical or original Negrids are the Sudanids because they have the most extreme specialization of the Negrid race, whereas other types have more archaic features or influences of other types.
Most Slaves came from the West African coast, Sudanids predominate though Palaenegrids are well represented as well and Kafrids are at least not absent.
If you see elongated faces and nose, you can usually assume some sort of Aethiopid or Europid influence. This is essentially true no matter where you find such people.
F.e. in the Zulu tribes in South Africa you can clearly see a certain amound of Aethiopid (not direct Europid) influence responsible for such refined, elongated, narrow face-nose types.
The problem with the African American population is the Europid admixture, but from what I saw and read Sudanid is definitely predominant.
Just look at typical dark black basketballers, if they are no recent immigrants from Southern Sudan or East Africa they can usually be considered as being typical Sudanids.
Though even under this dark black people you can see a certain Aethiopid or direct Europid influence from time to time...
I know its from a game, but still typical features...
(Puff might have very slight Aethiopid influence though)
A map I can generally agree with though I posted a better one on Skadi which some here might not be able to see...
I saw good maps about the expansion of Bantu's and the origin of the African American slavs as well, though I dont have them at home and cannot post them...
Imo Aethiopids in the widest sense can be divided in at least 4 groups.
West Africans which show the combination of Sudanid and Berberid features, the general Ethiopian type with a combination of Mediterranoid and general Negrid, the Niloto-Hamits (f.e. many Massai and Tutsi) with a combination of Nilotid with Aethiopid and the Somali (one average of course) with a combination of Orientalid and general Negrid.
For the West African Aethiopids which might came as slavs at least in small numbers to America is this group very typical:
So some slavs might have had some Europoid-Aethiopid admixture even before they arrived in the Americas.
