Colonial New York City was the location for two large scale insurrections and conspiracies planned and enacted by the city’s sizable enslaved community. Not surprisingly, enslaved individuals of the Philipse family played a part in both plots. Join historian and Philipse Manor Hall’s Site Director, Michael A. Lord, as he discusses these plots and other methods of resistance carried out by the enslaved community in 18th century New York.
