Historian Mary Tsaltas-Ottomanelli explores the lives of Black Loyalists seeking safety, protection, and a path to evacuation in the last months of the British occupation of New York City in 1783. Considered free citizens under British rule, thousands of free and self-emancipated Blacks flooded into the last British stronghold, this lecture will discuss the Loyalist Black experience in New York City, the Compilation of the Book of Negroes, and its impact on Loyalist history.
