The diversity of the city of New York for many seems to be one of the best examples of Americaâs âmelting potâ, and for many people around the world, Gotham is the city that first comes to mind when thinking about Americaâs great urban metropolises. It is of course no surprise to many informed members of the public that the city was also at the heart of the slave trade for close to two hundred years, a fact that seems to stand in stark contrast with the openness of todayâs city. This well-designed online exhibition, created by the New York Historical Society explores this aspect of the cityâs history through the use of interactive galleries and multimedia presentations that include interviews from National Public Radio with the curators of the exhibition. The section titled âFree Blacks in New Yorkâs Public Lifeâ (contained within Gallery 6) is definitely worth a closer look, as it looks at how blacks were portrayed in paintings and other rendering during the Federalist period.
