A Virtual Conference with the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society
The explosion of research into the lives of the Black inhabitants of the Dutch colony of New Netherland in recent years inspired this program. This special program brought together scholars who are at the cutting edge of this work. When did the first people of African descent arrive in New Netherland, how did they live once there and for years after, and what constituted slavery in the colony? NNI and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society co-hosted this program at the 2021New Netherland Institute Conference.
