August 24, 2010 Comments Off on Welcome to the Kingston, NY African and African-American Burial Ground Website.
This project serves as a way to organize important documents and to take steps in helping to protect the African and African-American Burial Grounds in the city of Kingston, NY. It was sponsored by the Kingston Land Trust.
Please visit often as we add collaborative partners and materials that will help to tell the stories of those buried and to better understand the rich African-American history in the city of Kingston and Ulster County.
