New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan

Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Jill Lepore

Narrated By: Beth McDonald

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: September 2005

Duration: 7 hours 32 minutes

Summary:

The untold story of the little-known Manhattan slave rebellion of 1741 and the white hysteria that resulted in thirty black men hanged or burned at the stake, over a hundred black men and women thrown into the dungeon beneath City Hall, and many more shipped into bone-crushing slavery on Caribbean plantations. Was this a brutal and audacious rebellion prevented just in time or a far more horrible and unjust version of the Salem witch trials?
