Girl Holding Sign That Reads… 

SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU: 
The heart of NYC’s finance district is built on a huge 18th Century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.
The burial ground extends form Broadway southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former world trade center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in lower Manhattan.
Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter is built on slavery, oppression, and death.
