Blending historical narrative with ideas for engaging young people as historians and thinkers, Alan J. Singer introduces readers to the truth about the history of slavery in New York State, and, by extension, about race in American society. As a historian and former secondary school social studies teacher, Singer offers a wealth of new information about the past and introduces people and events that have been erased from history.
