Slavery was prevalent throughout New Netherland and early New York. Colonial New York City was the location for two large scale insurrections and conspiracies planned and enacted by the city’s sizable enslaved community. Not surprisingly, individuals enslaved by the Philipse family played a role in both plots. Join historian and Philipse Manor Hall’s Site Director, Michael A. Lord, as he discusses the 1712 Insurrection, Conspiracy of 1741, and other methods of resistance carried out by the enslaved community in 18th century New York.
