Protect the Pine Street African Burial Ground!

Join our coalition!

Harambee would like to bring to your attention to the fact that there is an historic and forgotten African Burial Ground in Kingston, NY that urgently needs to be protected. Between the mid 1700s and late 1800s, countless enslaved and free blacks were buried here. The land is now a residential property in pre-foreclosure and if we don’t save it, it could remain in private hands and face continued disregard as well as potential disruption of the graves.

We are calling on you to join Harambee’s coalition of individuals, organizations and businesses to help spread the word. Your role will be to garner support for any next steps needed for our partner organization, the Kingston Land Trust.
Kingston Land Trust, to purchase and secure this site in order to permanently protect, restore and open it to the public as a regional interpretive center. The most pressing need is funds for the KLT to acquire the site.

By joining the coalition you commit to:

  1. Having your name or your organization’s logo listed as part of the coalition on the Harambee’s website and at related Harambee events, as well as on site once the Burial Ground is acquired
  2. Have your name listed on letters of support that Harambee writes on behalf of the coalition
  3. Attend and possibly speak at stakeholder events and public meetings
  4. Directing your networks to
