In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in the Hudson Valleycover art for book In Defiance

MSMC Library Week, February 6-10, 2017

Advertisements for fugitive slaves provide a unique window into black life in early America—from the nature of the slave system and the master-slave relationship to material culture and folk life. Learn about the life and minds of “runaways” from authors Susan Stessin-Cohn and Ashley Hurlburt-Biagini of the recently published book, In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in New York’s Hudson River Valley 1735–1831. Book sale and signing follows. Co-sponsored by the Division of Social Sciences.


In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in the Hudson Valley will take place February 7th at 4:00 p.m. in Kaplan Library Room 218. This event has been approved for Academic Success FYE credit, but students at all levels are welcome.

Kaplan Library is changing – because of you!! Each day of Library Week introduces a new or improved service suggested by the Spring 2016 Student Library Survey. To celebrate, we’re giving away TWENTY $10 Visa gift cards throughout the week. Watch your email for details.
