Mapping Slavery in New York (SPUI25)

8 jun 2017
Van 16:00 - 17:30uur

– In cooperation with Read My World, Mapping Slavery NL and Black Heritage Tours –

In August 2017, ‘Dutch New York Histories, Connecting Native American, African and Slavery Heritage’ will be published in the US and the Netherlands. It maps the Dutch history of New Amsterdam and New Netherland, later becoming New York city and state. It is the second guide after ‘Gids Slavernijverleden Amsterdam Slavery Guide’ (2014) that is written by the Mapping Slavery research team.

Due to the visit of two of the American partners who are in Amsterdam on invitation of Dutch Culture, Cordell Reaves and Dennis Maika, the Mapping Slavery team would like to give a sneak preview of their work, and introduce the partners they work with.

Jennifer Tosch will open the evening with a word of welcome, followed by an introduction on Mapping Dutch New York. Then, Cordell Reaves and Dennis Maika will discuss their respective research and work on slavery in the New York State. Lastly, Mark Ponte will talk about his research on Black presence in 17th century Amsterdam after which there will be a panel discussion with all speakers and room for questions from the audience, moderated by Nancy Jouwe.
