September 24, 2021 @ 3:30 PM 6:00 PM

You’re invited to a teach-in with:

Dr. Michael Blakey, lead anthropologist for the Lower Manhattan African Burial Ground. Dr. Blakey will unpack the lessons of creating the National African Burial Ground monument in lower Manhattan.

Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo will share the history of the Moses Macedonia African Cemetery and their current path to halting the further desecration of that site.

Dr. Uzma Rizvi from Pratt Institute and Dr. Thomas Angotti from CUNY will be contributing to the discussion by engaging Dr. Blakey around “Community as Client” and creating a road map for future discoveries.

Sponsor: GrowHouse NYC, a proud founding member of the Flatbush African Burial Ground Coalition.
