After a captivating lecture this evening (notes and questions to be posted soon), we’re even more excited to have Carla Peterson leading the “Black Gotham in/outside the Archive” Workshop tomorrow, 4 PM at 20 Cooper Square, 4th Fl (Department of Social and Cultural Analysis).
As mentioned in our previous post, she’ll cover some of the topics below during the discussion.
* the use of obituaries
* legal cases and the Negroes Burial Ground
* using military archives
* city streets as archives
Check out our Materials page for relevant excerpts from Black Gotham: A Family History of African Americans in Nineteenth-Century New York City.
See you tomorrow! Bring your questions and your imagination.
