Ethical Adventures Easy Walkers: African Burial Ground and “Brighter Days”
October 5 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm
Rediscovered in 1991 after more than 200 years, this lower Manhattan cemetery, which holds more than 8,000 Africans and African Americans, was made a National Monument in 2007. After our tour, we’ll walk to City Hall Park to visit “Brighter Days,” the recently installed show of sculpture by African American artist Melvin Edwards. Afterward, there are many choices for lunch.
We recommend that you preview the YouTube video of “Brighter Days,” featuring Mr. Edwards.
Details: We’ll meet at the Burial Ground at 10:30, 290 Broadway. Email Bob, email@example.com, and Howard, firstname.lastname@example.org.
