Telling Their Stories: Researching the History of Two Black Residents
History is a powerful force, shaping the way we see our community and define our culture. But as stories are told and re-told, sometimes the facts shift or the real story is directly silenced. This talk will present new research on two black residents of the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown area whose stories have been attributed to others. We will share the history of Harry, a man enslaved by Frederick Philipse I, and Laura Taylor, the real force behind the donation of the land for Captors Monument in Patriots Park.
