Spaces of Danger: Navigating Freedom in the Mid-Hudson Valley
May 19, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Across the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean and North America, enslaved Africans lived their lives under constant threat to themselves and their families. Even for free men and women, everywhere lay the risk of danger, displacement and death. Often, their response was to flee, to run, to self-emancipate, sometimes with help from the Underground Railroad. Today’s talk examines aspects of the Underground Railroad story as it played out for people in the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York and posits how – even to this day – America remains a space of danger for Black men and women.
Presented by: Peter A. Bunten, Chairman, Mid-Hudson Antislavery History Project
