«The Gilder Lehrman Fellowship was incredibly helpful to me as I researched Slavery’s Metropolis. First, it gave me access to unparalleled archival collections at Gilder Lehrman as well as archives across New York City. I reviewed hundreds, if not thousands, of documents during my semester-long residency. Second, the fellowship gave me access to a stimulating intellectual environment that continues to inspire me.»
