Black Freedom-Making in the Early National Cumberland Valley

February 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

As soon as the Pennsylvania General Assembly enacted its first gradual abolition law in 1780, African Americans got to work using its provisions to expedite the coming of freedom. This virtual talk examines the strategies that Black Pennsylvanians, enslaved and free, employed to chip away at slavery’s continued existence in the Keystone State during the first half century after independence.
