Angelou, the renowned American writer and poet, spoke of the enslavement and mistreatment of Africans during the colonial and early statehood periods of present-day New York City during a special ceremony at a site that became the African Burial Ground National Monument. Her words now hang on the rafters of a new visitor center at the monument in downtown New York. Opened in February, the center presents a panorama of black people’s lives on Manhattan Island, the original settlement of New York City, in the 17th and 18th centuries.
