Join Us For Our Book Club Discussion!

Join us for our monthly book club discussion on "Slavery Before Race: Europeans, Africans, and Indians at Long Island's Sylvester Manor Plantation: 1651-1884" by Katherine Howlett Hayes, who will be joining us for the discussion.

The study of slavery in the Americas generally assumes a basic racial hierarchy: Africans or those of African descent are usually the slaves, and white people usually the slaveholders. In this unique interdisciplinary work of historical archaeology, anthropologist Katherine Hayes draws on years of fieldwork on Shelter Island's Sylvester Manor to demonstrate how racial identity was constructed and lived before plantation slavery was racialized by the legal codification of races. Using the historic Sylvester Manor Plantation site turned archaeological dig as a case study, Hayes draws on artifacts and extensive archival material to present a rare picture of northern slavery on one of the North's first plantations.

Join us for our Book Club Discussion!

Join us for our monthly virtual book club discussion of "Dark Noon" by Tom Clavin, who will be joining us for the discussion. This program is being presented in partnership with the Montauk Historical Society. Mia Certic, Executive Director of the Montauk Historical Society will also be joining us for the discussion.

Dark Noon is the mesmerizing re-creation of a fateful day at sea. It is also a story of the postwar American dream as experienced in the fishing village of Montauk, Long Island, where fish were money and where optimism and success went hand in hand. And it's a story of the end of an era, when one terrible disaster changed the fishing culture of a prosperous port forever.
