Social Justice Tours: People’s History of Lower Manhattan Tour

NOTE: This event does not take place at Bluestockings!

Lower Manhattan is the foundation of western society in New York. Yet, the vast majority of New York history is non western. We start the tour with an overview of Indigenous history in NYC. We then move on to walk through slave history of New York, checking out a former slave market, the burial ground, and a stop on the underground railroad. We then move on to discuss wall street corruption, with a particular emphasis on what happened in the 2008 financial crisis. Sign up at

This event has a Google Hangouts video call.
