About this Event

Standing Where They Stood: Learning About Slavery in Oyster Bay, is a 90-minute program that brings to light the history of African-Americans who were enslaved in Oyster Bay and on Long Island. This interactive presentation reveals true stories of individuals who lived in slavery, including the first slave freed on Long Island, the first published black author in America, an enslaved woman who escaped with the British, and a regiment of African-Americans who fought alongside Col. Simcoe's Queen's Rangers. Participants examine historical documents, runaway slave ads, notices of slaves for sale, and learn about how laws in New York to end slavery impacted the lives of these forgotten Long Islanders.
