Slavery in the Colonial North
In July 2019, Historic Hudson Valley presents a National Endowment for the Humanities institute for K-12 teachers, exploring the subject of slavery in the colonial north. Participants in the institute will explore both the institutional and personal sides of enslavement, understanding how slavery emerged under Dutch law and expanded and became codified under English rule. The institute will present the institution of slavery as interwoven throughout colonial development, as opposed to its usual compartmentalization in the mid-19th century American South.
