A Far Cry from Freedom: Gradual Abolition (1799-1827) New York State's Crime Against Humanity

Local Author L. Lloyd Stewart discusses his new book on Sunday, March 19th, 3pm at Main.

Although historians have described NYS's brand of African enslavement as benevolent and mild in comparison to the barbarism that existed in the southern states, L. Lloyd Stewart's research on a little know period in NYS history called Gradual Abolition, explores the impact of the brutal enslavement in NYS.

L. Lloyd Stewart is a third generation native of Albany and an eighth generation native of NYS. As principal of his lobbying and consulting firm, Stewart Associates, Stewart became the first registered independent African-American lobbyist in NYS.

This event is produced by the New World African Film & Art Forum.
