Details

From about the 1690s until 1794, both free and enslaved Africans were buried at the African Burial Ground in lower Manhattan. The site is, the first National Monument dedicated to Africans of early New York and Americans of African descent. The story of how this site was lost to history due to landfill and development, and then rediscovered and preserved in 1991 is a civil rights story unto itself.
