David Ruggles: A Radical Black Abolitionist and the Underground Railroad in New York City

(book talk) 6:30 PM, Elebash Recital Hall

David Ruggles (1810-1849), one of the most heroic figures of the early abolitionist movement in America, is often overlooked. Graham Russell Gao Hodges of Colgate University provides the first biography of this African American activist, writer, and publisher who secured liberty for more than six hundred people, the most famous of whom was Frederick Douglass. Hodges's portrait of Ruggles, published by the University of North Carolina Press, establishes the abolitionist as an essential link between disparate groups -- male and female, black and white, clerical and secular, elite and rank-and-file. Presented by the Gotham Center for NYC History; free, but seating is limited and reservations are required. Reservations can be made at www.gc.cuny.edu/events. For further information, call 212-817-8215.
