Fordham University recently launched a burial database project for enslaved African American. It allows anyone to submit locations they suspect may be the site of an unmarked grave of slaves. On this week’s Fordham Conversations we hear from Sandra Arnold, the Founding Director of The Burial Database Project of Enslaved African Americans and Staff Member with Fordham’s Department of African and African American Studies. "We also hear from Dr. Michael Blakey, Professor of Anthropology at William & Mary College and Former Director of the African Burial Ground Project in New York City, and a current adviser to the Burial Database Project of Enslaved African Americans."
