THE AFRICAN BURIAL GROUND

THE AFRICAN BURIAL GROUND

No, not in Africa, despite the current MESS over there...

This is in NEW YORK CITY....

A graveyard with the remains of over 400 BLACK SLAVES has recently been stumbled upon...

As incredible as it may seem, these are the Blacks that Built Wall Street...

It is how wall Street got it's name...

Even though Peter Minuit, as I recall, paid mere TRINKETS, worth less than 16 dollars, for the entirety of MANHATTAN,
the Dutch of the time were still notoriously STINGY....

The place needed to be developed, rocks hauled, backs BROKEN....

But, not DUTCH backs...

They brought in captured African Slaves to do the dirty work, including building the massive WALL that Wall Street is named for....

They were not allowed to be buried among the Dutch....

So they were buried in a distant field....

Men, Women, Children...
