The KLT has purchased 157 Pine Street in Uptown, Kingston; the long forgotten historic African Burial Ground contained within is once and for all forever protected. Now that the site is secured, the KLT will work with partner organization Harambee and the community to restore the grounds and convert the building into an interpretive center for education and reflection.
