What to expect
Explore Lower Manhattan and learn about the history of slavery in New York City on this unique walking tour. The story begins in the early 1700s, when the port city of New York had one of the largest populations of enslaved people of all of England's colonies. As the population of enslaved Africans and poor European indentured servants increased, a large and loosely organized underclass began to take shape. On this tour, you'll hear the story of how this growing underclass ignited the rebellion known as the New York Conspiracy of 1741 or the Great Negro Plot. Unlike most rebellions in the colonies or West Indies, the conspirators were tried in the New York Supreme Court. The trial was documented in an extensive journal by one of the justices, creating an insightful look into slavery, colonial law, class, and politics. See how this history continues to shape the city today.
