Opportunity at a Glance: The African American and Irish immigrant community of Seneca Village offers a unique lens to explore the lives of African Americans who lived in New York City during the nineteenth-century. The research pioneered by the Institute to Explore Seneca Village History gives a voice to the urban experience of African Americans who lived during this turbulent antebellum period.
