Although the history of enslavement in lower New York is well documented and researched, its significance to the development of New York’s commercial and cultural development continues to be obscured, ignored, or misunderstood. Michael A. Lord, Director of Content Development at Historic Hudson Valley, examines the issues, events, and individual choices surrounding enslavement in the Hudson Valley from the perspective of those who were enslaved. “People Not Property” traces the development of slavery in New York, resistance to the institution, and why this history continues to be relevant.
