A state grant will go toward building a memorial to pay tribute at a slave burial ground that was discovered last year in Drake Park.

Last year, students from P.S. 48 found the burial ground, which dates back hundreds of years.

After the Museum of New York City published photos of the burial ground, students at P.S. 48 continued to search for more using old newspapers and maps.
