A Far Cry From Freedom: Gradual Abolition of Slavery in New York

Date: 
Thu, 07/10/2014 - 6:45pm - 7:45pm
Age Group: 
Adult
Teens

Author L. Lloyd Stewart will give a presentation from his book "A Far Cry from Freedom," which details the convoluted laws and politics of gradual emancipation in New York State.  While New Yorkers often pride themselves on the early law of 1799 for abolition of slavery, most do not realize that its elaborate provisions actually extended slavery for twenty eight years.  The month of July thus became a bitter one for New York's enslaved African Americans, for the emancipation date was twenty eight years in the future -- July 4, 1827.
