DEM DRY BONES

Dem dry bones of
Our ancestors still lay
Buried downtown beneath
Skyscrapers in lower Manhattan
Valley of sacred burial grounds
Covered with granite
And cement and asphalt
Highways headed uptown
To God knows where

  1. The African Burial Grounds in New York City's lower Manhattan section, were discovered in 1991, when workers cleared a site to construct a building. 400 bodies were found dating back centuries.
