*SLAVERY AND THE MAKING OF NEW YORK
The New-York Historical Society is embarking on a two-year initiative on slavery and New York. The first phase of the exhibition, tentatively titled "Slavery and the Making of New York" is slated to open on October 7, 2005. Through two major exhibitions, public programs, walking tours, educational materials and programs for school, college, and adult learners, N-YHS will explore the vital role that slave trading, the labor of enslaved people, and important commerce with slave societies in the 19th century played in making New York the wealthiest city in the world. The N-YHS is working collaboratively with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Library in developing these exhibitions, and in planning related educational and public programs.
