“Slavery and Social Power in Early New York’s Dutch Reformed Churches" discusses that while these churches provided a sense of belonging and social standing to its congregants, the buildings and churchyards were also used to reinforce society’s social hierarchies and exclude those who were deemed unworthy. In doing so, they proved powerful tools of social power that helped sustain slavery in these communities. Andrea received her Ph.D. at Boston University and is currently a professor at the University of New Orleans. Her broader research explores the multi-faceted dimensions of slavery, the slave trade, and cross-cultural contact in the Early Modern Dutch Atlantic.
