Slavery In NY Exhibit
From Oct 7 thru March 11th at the conservatively funded Gilder/Lehrman NY Historical Society. From all accounts this appears to be an improvement over the Alexander Hamilton exhibit. The web site has some gems. Here's a slide show I put together of an escaped slave notice. The flash animation on the site provides a good analysis of the wording. Good DBQ practice. Here also is a mp3 of Brian Lehrer's interview with Leslie Harris from Emory University, who contributed to the companion book. This will probably be one of the soon to come resources of Gotham's. That's like KLUPPEN KOP IN VANT.
