FIRST FRIDAY PROGRAM MEETINGS: In person at Clinton Town Hall, The Eight: The Lemmon Slave Case and the Fight for FreedomPresented by Albert M. Rosenblatt, Judge, New York State Court of Appeals (retired). All but forgotten today, the Lemmon slave case was one of the most momentous civil rights cases in American history. The case concerned the fates of eight enslaved people from Virginia who were brought through New York in 1852 by their owners, Juliet and Jonathan Lemmon. The Eight were in court seeking, legally, to become peopleā€”to change their status under law from objects into human beings. Join Rosenblatt for a book talk and signing.
