Content of lectures

The period following the introduction of the Emancipation Act in 1863 presented new opportunities and challenges for former enslaved people and their descendants. Their unique stories are valuable sources for understanding their perspectives and experiences. These stories reveal religious and migratory customs, along with the social, economic and political changes that took place in the Dutch Caribbean.
