Since colonial times, African Americans have played a major role in the development of New York City—although their contributions have often gone unrecognized and unacknowledged. Today, archaeological investigations are one way that we can unearth and recapture these stories to not only develop a more accurate record of the past but also to contribute to the city’s cultural diversity. Join noted archaeologists, historians, and public officials for a conversation about excavations focused on the city’s African-American ancestors, as well as present-day efforts to bring these untold stories to the public.
