The African Burying Ground Reburial Ceremony and Public Celebration Video 5/23/15
The African Burying Ground is located at Chestnut Street between Court and State Streets in downtown Portsmouth. If you were to map it using internet mapping products, you could use the address of 97 Chestnut Street which is a building in the middle of the block. The site is an outdoor, public cemetery/park.
The African Burying Ground Committee and Community Volunteers are working to raise awareness of the African Burying Ground and to raise needed funds to ensure the project is completed and the site is returned to sacred ground. With your help, we will ensure this goal is met. Please consider a donation of any amount, through either online or convenient pledge forms. Read more about the story here...
