Planning for a national tour of a panel exhibition and public programs modeled after two exhibitions at the New-York Historical Society on slavery in New York from its early 17th-century roots through the aftermath of the Civil War.

Slavery in New York comprises an exhibition, a series of related educational initiatives, special publications, and public programs, all of which promote a more comprehensive understanding of not only New York’s, but also our nation’s, involvement in human slavery. In order to further the reach of this important story, the Society created a panel exhibition specifically designed to travel (i.e. to libraries and small institutions), thereby reaching a number of people who would not normally visit the larger Slavery in New York exhibition at the N-YHS’s museum in Manhattan. In response to greater than anticipated, and nationwide, requests for this traveling form of the larger Slavery in New York exhibition, the Society wishes to create six (6) additional sets of the nine-panel exhibition for a national tour.
