Historian Jonathan Daniel Wells to discuss his book ‘The Kidnapping Club: Wall Street, Slavery, and Resistance on the Eve of the Civil War’
Slavery was outlawed in New York by 1827, but the city’s Black residents could never relax, historian Dr. Jonathan Daniel Wells writes. A collection of slave catchers and police officers in New York City were lying in wait to snatch children and adults and sell them into slavery.
Wells, a historian and professor of Afroamerican and African Studies at the University of Michigan’s Residential College, spends his latest book, “The Kidnapping Club: Wall Street, Slavery, and Resistance on the Eve of the Civil War” describing the harrowing tale of corrupt police and the people they harmed. At 6 p.m., Tuesday, Wells will discuss his book and the history in a virtual talk sponsored by the Norwich Humanities Initiative.
