LOWER MANHATTAN MANDATE: BLACK GOTHAM
Walking Tour

Photos: Kait Ebinger

We journeyed to New York City’s early history—the colonial mandate by British governors—as Black Gotham founder Kamau Ware guided participants on an evening tour of how the historic actions of policymakers controlled the lives of the first black New Yorkers. We discovered the laws, conspiracies, and rebellions that influenced the expanding colony along lines of slavery, class, and politics, and continue to inform the experience of today’s city.

This event was designated for AIA CES (2 LU)
