Join the Tenement Museum and the African Burial Ground National Monument on YouTube Live for a special virtual program to trace the history of African experiences in New Amsterdam. Centuries before New York became the city we now know, Africans and their descendants built the infrastructure of this Dutch colony, created communities, and shaped the future of the city. We will explore the history of two African families through primary sources to learn about who they were and how they made a home on the land that became Manhattan.
