Program description: Under slavery, it was not only the slaves who suffered. Free blacks were at risk of being kidnapped and sold as slaves. Once they were taken to a slave state, chances of their returning home were small. Several New Yorkers, from various parts of the state, were rescued from slavery, and their kidnappers were held accountable for their deeds. This presentation will tell their stories. Fiske is a co-author of Solomon Northup: The Complete Story of the Author of Twelve Years a Slave. Great Black History topic!
