Discussion | Commemorating Abolition Day—Manumission: the Struggle to End Slavery in New York


When we think about slavery, many think of the American South—yet, for more than two centuries, slavery was a key institution in the development of New York, right from its formative years. In commemoration of New York State’s Abolition Day, join the discussion with Dr. William Seraile on how geography, religion, the black church, African American abolitionists and the principles of the American revolution’s desire for independence from England led to the July 4, 1827 manumission of slavery in New York State. Vlogger TheAncestorsSpeaks will contextualize this history, relating it to struggles within the Lower East Side.

Concert | Chicago Rapper Channels Grief and Fulfillment


Chicago rapper Saba—co-founder of the musical collective Pivot Gang and one third of the supergroup Ghetto Sage with Smino and Noname—first drew widespread attention for his early collaborations with Chance the Rapper, and has since established himself as a diaristic storyteller, channeling his grief into the instant classic LP Care for Me. Saba says that his latest album Few Good Things is “the realization of self after a search for exterior fulfillment,” incorporating Black-owned companies, independent creators, and filmmakers into the album’s content. He’s joined by Eryn Allen Kane, a Detroit-born and raised recording artist, songwriter, and producer whose work explores stories of love, loss, social injustice, and the fragility of life; and theMIND, a Philadelphia-born hip-hop and R&B artist whose latest album Don’t Let it Go to Your Head references René Magritte’s 1928 surrealist painting "The Lovers" while speaking directly to our culture’s erasure of Black bodies.
