AFRICAN GRAVES MATTER

by Clark Adomaitis, Intern from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

A vacant lot in Flatbush, BK at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and Church Avenue is on top of an unmarked African Burial ground. It’s overgrown with weeds, untamed grass, and trees. Some community members want the site to be developed as an urban farm, some want a community garden, but all are united on the importance of commemorating the African Burial site.
