“A New York Lamentation” is a play that brings to life the tragic history of slavery that existed in New York City and the Hudson Valley for more than 200 years. The characters in the play are real historical figures from the nineteenth century, including slaves, slave owners, clergy, and abolitionists of this region. “A New York Lamentation” is an initiative of the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Reparations Committee, which is tasked with addressing the legacy of slavery and its ongoing impact on our society and our Church. The play was written by an Episcopal priest, the Rev. Chuck Cramer, Rector of Saint James Episcopal Church, Hyde Park.
