Laura Leibman is the author of The Art of the Jewish Family: A History of Women in Early New York in Five Objects, which won three National Jewish Book Awards. Her latest book, Once We Were Slaves, is about an early multiracial Jewish family who began their lives enslaved in the Caribbean and became some of the wealthiest Jews in New York.
