Black History Month: African Burial Ground National Monument


African Burial Ground National Monument sticker

The African Burial Ground National Monument is located in the Lower Manhattan section of New York City. The remains of over 400 Africans buried during the 17th and 18th centuries were found here. Some of them were free but most were enslaved. The burial makes up the largest colonial-era cemetery for people of African decent. It is estimated that there were over 10,000 burials here. Today, a memorial sits on this site dedicated to the Africans and African-Americans who were integral to the development of New York City and the United States.
