Free with Museum Admission
This program begins before the Museum opens for the day and has a limited capacity. As such, pre-purchasing tickets online is strongly recommended.
Ages 12 and up with their adults
In the American Slavery Project's Community Lab Writing Workshop, participants learn about the many African descended men, women, and children—enslaved, indentured, and free—who are buried in the African Burial Ground in Lower Manhattan and create a monologue based on their lives that will then be performed by professional American Slavery Project actors.
In the process, participants also learn about the colonial era, examine artifacts, discover contents of some of the actual graves, and engage in theatre games.
Although this event is free with Museum Admission, pre-purchasing tickets online in advance is strongly recommended.
