American Irony: Religious Freedom & Slavery in Colonial New Paltz & Newport, RI

When: Sat., Feb. 11, 2-3 p.m. 2017

A talk with historians Eric Roth and Keith Stokes entitled “American Irony: Religious Freedom & Slavery in Colonial New Paltz and Newport, Rhode Island,” exploring the moral contradictions in early American settlements. Like early New Paltz, Newport served as a center for religious tolerance in colonial North America. However, those who sought religious freedom in these colonies ultimately prospered due to the enslavement of Africans.
