Humanist Discussion Group Online Meeting - Tuesday, August 18, 7:00 p.m.
The Humanist Discussion Group has its next Zoom meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18. The topic is the History of Slavery on Long Island. Consider reading LONG ISLAND HISTORY: The rise of slavery.
"Long Island had the largest slave population of any rural or urban area in the North for most of the colonial era. For almost two centuries, New York was a slave colony and Long Island was a slave island. As the colonial period came to an end, on the eve of the Revolutionary War, slavery remained a potent force on Long Island. In the 1771 census, ... Suffolk County ... had the largest population on Long Island, 13,128, and 11 percent were black."
