More Information

Description:

The untold story of the little-known Manhattan slave rebellion of 1741 and the white hysteria that resulted in thirty black men hanged or burned at the stake, over a hundred black men and women thrown into the dungeon beneath City Hall, and many more shipped into bone-crushing slavery on Caribbean plantations. Was this a brutal and audacious rebellion prevented just in time or a far more horrible and unjust version of the Salem witch trials?
