I was one of the 420 African Burial Ground Drummers last night in a dedication ceremony (that continues today!) of the Memorial Dedication of the AFrican Burial Ground National Monument.
Did You Know? New York's African Burial Ground is the final resting place of approximately 15,000 free and enslaved Africans. Dating from the late 17th century. It has been called one of the most important archaeological finds of our time.
