It puts a face on this whole human experience."—Susan Stessin-Cohn In... "There are so few stories about enslaved people in the North.

In Defiance: Runaways from Slavery in New York’s Hudson River Valley, 1735-1831, Susan Stessin-Cohn and Ashley Hurlburt-Biagini, Black Dome Press, NY, 2016

In Defiance: Runaways in New York’s Hudson Valley, 1735-1831 contains hundreds of notices of people who took liberation into their own hands. Each notice presents a glimpse into a dark space. We will use our words, spoken and written, to illuminate our dark history and bring the evidence of these defiant human beings to life through story.
