Slavery in New York Website

In 2005/2006, the New York Historical Society had a groundbreaking exhibition called Slavery in New York. One of the most shocking things I learned in this exhibit (there were many shocks) was that at the height of the slave trade during colonial times, New York was second only to Charleston, South Carolina as a slave trading port. This is so shocking because it was always taught in schools that slavery was an institution of the Southern United States alone. Even today, alot of New Yorkers remain unaware of the African Burial Ground and the existence of slavery in New York.
