Manhattan College Students Present Their Research
During Spring 2019, Adam Arenson, Manhattan College Associate Professor of History and Director of the Urban Studies Program, led a college course "to learn more about the history of slavery in the Bronx, and to see what this history means for the current residents of these neighborhoods, and for those whose families have roots here. We want to use our research skills as historians to help people learn more about their history and their connections. And we plan to consider what kind of memorial is right for this legacy of slavery, and the enslaved people buried in unmarked graves, in the Bronx and elsewhere." For more information on the course, Slavery in the Bronx, visit the website. Now the students are presenting their research! Unable to attend?
