Lunchtime Lecture Series: Slavery and Emancipation in New York State

Mar 15th 2024 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Bring your lunch and enjoy a lecture at the Equal Rights Heritage Center as the SHM reprises this popular monthly series. For our first installment, join Professor Michael Groth of Wells College for an overview of the often overlooked history of slavery in New York. Groth further explores the drawn-out process of emancipation, an intense contest between slaveholders and the enslaved over generations. This event will take place at the Equal Rights Heritage Center and is free and open to the public.
