Celebrate National Park Service’s Birthday With Free Events at the African Burial Ground

The National Park Service’s 106th birthday is coming up later this month, and they went ahead and got you a present: The parks service, which is turning a lean 106 on August 25, will offer a day of free programming, music and history at the African Burial Ground National Monument (290 Broadway) in Lower Manhattan. 

The event will include Day’s Ahead, a band featuring Day Kornegay and Amber Nicole, performing in the lobby of the Ted Weiss Federal Building from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. After the music, stick around for a film highlighting Black stories in the theater inside the monument’s visitor center, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 212.238.4367.
