Caesar's Rebellion Part I | Fall 2017*
Caesar's Rebellion Part I :: 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Length: 90 minutes | Thursdays
Caesar's Rebellion is set in the 18th century of British New York and has two parts. Part I shares a tale set on the southern tip of the island Manhattan that is home to the wealthy master class, merchants, pirates, sailors, indentures, prostitutes, free Black people, and enslaved Africans. This walking tour explains how the enslaved and free people of African descent worked together to subvert the system of slavery and define a culture of rebellion. Central to this story are several enslaved men by the name of Caesar being brought to the port city of New York from the sugar plantations of the West Indies culminating with the first armed Black rebellion in 1712.
