Description

Over a few weeks in 1741, thirteen fires blazed across New York City. With each new fire, panicked whites cried from street corners, "The Negroes are rising!" Thirteen black men were burned at the stake, and seventeen more were hanged. Of more than a hundred black men and women thrown into a dungeon underneath City Hall, more than seventy-seven confessed and named names, sending still more men to the gallows and the stake, and still others to bone-crushing slavery in the Caribbean.
