My "Black New York" professor Dionne Bennett treated the class to a field trip to the African Burial
My "Black New York" professor Dionne Bennett treated the class to a field trip to the African Burial Ground because it aligned with the class's coursework. As college students we were ecstatic to go on a field trip because it's uncommon for students our age to be taken off campus to learn. On the day of our field trip we all met up at the museum , which can be a bit difficult to find because of the many buildings in the vicinity. However, after finding the site and entering the building, this museum left me speechless for quite a bit of time . Although small the museum was beautifully, yet gracefully designed. I was not prepared for the amount of knowledge that was provided to me , and at times some of the new information became overwhelming. Without giving too much away , I would say that if you are in the area do yourself a favor and visit The African Burial Ground. The experience is unlike any other.
