Pro-Slavery NYC: Kidnappings and Greed in the Antebellum North
In his new book, "The Kidnapping Club: Wall Street, Slavery, and the Resistance on the Eve of the Civil War," historian Jonathan Daniel Wells exposes the vast power network of New York City judges, lawyers, police officers, and bankers who furtively kept the slave trade alive long after it was outlawed. Join Wells and University of Chicago professor of history Rashauna Johnson, for a conversation about greed, the ties between northern capitalism and slavery, and NYC activists, like David Ruggles, who risked their lives to fight the heinous cabal.

Please be advised that this webinar has a capacity of 500 attendees. Attendees are admitted into the webinar on a first come, first served basis.
