The outdoor memorial at African Burial Ground National Monument rises behind some of the mounds marking the reinterrment site of the human remains that were unearthed when the burial ground was rediscovered.
This exhibit shows what the carving and fabric was like on the coffins that were created to re-inter the bones that were excavated during and subsequent to the discovery of the African Burial Ground in New York City.
This exhibit displays replica artifacts, as well as examples of African fabrics. The map on the wall helps the visitor establish a reference of where designs for the fabrics and artifacts likely originated.
This photo shows two displays that explore the work life of enslaved Africans. On the left is a woman's household duties, on the right is a man's job moving heavy cargo. Visitors are invited to push the barrel up a ramp to see how heavy they were.
These life-size figures of two men depict them in the midst of a burial during the Colonial period, when enslaved Africans had to abide by many rules about where, when and how they could bury their dead.
