Slavery in the Colonial North
The institute will present slavery as a central element of American economic and political development and will equip participants with the tools needed to teach this history with accuracy and sensitivity. The program will be centered around Historic Hudson Valley's award-winning interactive documentary People Not Property: Stories of Slavery in the Colonial North, which models an interpretive approach centered on the stories of enslaved individuals. Academic readings selected by Institute faculty discuss how slavery developed in the United States as well as educational frameworks to help students engage with this difficult but important history.
