The New-York Historical Society will host scholar Howard Dodson as he discusses the history of slavery in the Americas and in New York on Tuesday, October 18th, 6:30 p.m. at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West at 77th Street.
Slavery was almost one hundred years old in the Americas when the institution was first established in New York City. It would last another sixty years in other parts of the Americas after it was abolished in New York in 1827. Howard Dodson discusses the factors and forces that produced the transatlantic slave trade in the Western Hemisphere, and places the rise of slavery in New York City in the context of these hemispheric developments.
Presented in Collaboration with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
