The African Burial Ground National Monument's story is both old and new. It began use in the 17th or 18th century, but was only rediscovered in the past 20 years. The National Monument is dedicated to telling the story of the Africans whose holy place this was, and also the story of the modern day New Yorkers who fought to honor these ancestors. One such ancestor is Christopher Moore, a descendant of Groot Manuel, one of the first 11 enslaved Africans in New York City.
Our collectible African Burial Ground Magnet features New York's African Burial Ground, the nation's earliest known African and African American cemetery.
