A full house for last night's author event! 📚
Thank you to Susan Stessin-Cohn for an engaging presentation last night on the newest 2nd edition of her book "In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in New York's Hudson River Valley." Susan presented new research and historical findings, discussing the long history of slavery in the Hudson Valley and those who escaped bo***ge for freedom, including records of "run-aways" from the hamlet of Staatsburg.
