Understanding the history of African and early African American New York is an important way to develop a deeper insight and window into the world of the 19th-century Seneca Village community.


This picture of African life in early
New York City was created by students in
Class K at P.S. 46 in Brooklyn, New York.

This is a photograph of one of several murals that were hung on the perimeter of the African Burial Ground construction site in 1992 and 1993.

We thank P.S. 46 for their contribution, then and now.
