“Will Likely Endeavor to Pass for a Free Man:” Runaway Slave Ads in New Jersey Newspapers

Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Dr. James Amemasor, Research Specialist at the New Jersey Historical Society, has undertaken a research project that uses fugitive slave ads to document slavery in New Jersey in the period from the Treaty of Paris (1783) until the official end of the United States’ involvement in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade (1808). His research collects and interprets ads that have not been digitized and have been largely inaccessible to the public and scholars. Suggested donation: $5. Crane House and Historic YWCA, 110 Orange Road, Montclair in the Founder’s Room.
