Colonial Newspapers: Complicit with Slavery

Kevin McGruder, assistant professor of history, is pleased to announce “Unwelcome History: The (Enslaved) African Presence in Old New York,” an Antioch College interdisciplinary residency , featuring historian and Antioch alumna Dr. Martia Goodson ‘65.

In 1990 construction workers excavating for a federal office building in Lower Manhattan uncovered bones that led to the rediscovery of the African Burial Ground, a 18th century cemetery in which enslaved Africans were buried. Four hundred of the thousands of remains buried, were exhumed and analyzed, providing a new understanding of the harsh conditions in which enslaved Africans lived in New York City.  The site is now managed by the Federal Parks Service.  In this residency, Dr. Goodson explores historical, social, journalistic, anthropological aspects of this re-discovery from colonial America.
