Om New York Burning

Pulitzer Prize Finalist and Anisfield-Wolf Award WinnerIn New York Burning, Bancroft Prize-winning historian Jill Lepore recounts these dramatic events of 1741, whenten fires blazed across Manhattanand panicked whites suspecting it to be the work a slave uprising went on a rampage. In the end, thirteen black men were burned at the stake, seventeen were hanged and more than one hundred black men and women were thrown into a dungeon beneath City Hall. Even backin the seventeenth century, the city was a rich mosaic of cultures, communities and colors, with slaves making up a full one-fifth of the population. Exploring the political and social climate of the times, Lepore dramatically shows how, in a city rife with state intrigue and terror, the threat of black rebellion united the white political pluralities in a frenzy of racial fear and violence.
