In doing so, they proved powerful tools of social power that helped sustain slavery in these communities. Andrea received her Ph.D. at Boston University and is currently a professor at the University of New Orleans. Her broader research explores the multi-faceted dimensions of slavery, the slave trade, and cross-cultural contact in the Early Modern Dutch Atlantic. The discussion is presented by the New Netherlands Institute, Peebles Island Restoration Center and the Friends of Philipse Manor Hall, and is free Philipse Manor continued… 10. of charge.
