Last time I was home in the Bronx we visited an enslaved burial ground. This site is 1.2 miles from where I grew up but I’d never heard of it until this year. 
The sign on the gate said that in a segregated section of the cemetery an enslaved nanny, coachman, farm laborer, wood cutter, driver, blacksmith, cook, groom, carpenter, and seamstress were buried. Only one was named, a woman known as Aunt Rose. 
Through all my years in public school, we were never taught this history. Rather we were told that our neighborhoods had nothing to offer and we needed to get out.

I hope more people, especially young folks, visit this place and ask questions and learn about the rich history of the Bronx. .

Spent the afternoon at Poe's Cottage in the Bronx for our Colonel Benjamin Tallmadge Chapter, NSDAR chapter meeting. This month's guests spoke about the Hunt's Point Slave Burial Ground, also in the Bronx. Just a few weeks ago I visited (and later wrote about) the park where the burial ground is located. Between the warehouses in the very industrial Hunts Point neighborhood is Joseph Rodman Drake (an early NYC poet) Park. There is a visible cemetery and fence (wealthier citizens of the Bronx), but the slave burial ground on the same grounds were only recently discovered, and partners with the nearby P.S. 48x. (PS. It was a perfect rainy day to be at the Poe Cottage!)
