Pine St. African Burial Ground Short Film

Help our community share the story of the Pine Street African Burial Ground- Let's bring this history to light! (See teaser below).

Documentary footage recorded by Growing Films will be edited into a short film to tell a story of the history, protection and future of the Burial Ground in Kingston, NY, that was protected in 2019 through a partnership between Harambee and the Kingston Land Trust in collaboration with Scenic Hudson and with the support of the community. 

Let’s make sure this historic and monumental process can be shared as an educational film to inspire not only our region, but efforts across the United States, as well as future generations.

The Youth Team was a 6-month collaborative program of the Kingston YMCA Farm Project, KaN Design, Harambee, Kingston Land Trust, and Growing Films with support provided by the City of Kingston’s 2019 participatory budget award.

** Note: although the beneficiary of this campaign is listed as Ted Griese, the funds are not going to him as an individual, rather he is collecting the funds as the operations manager for the Kingston Land Trust and his name is therefore associated with the Kingston Land Trust bank account where the funds are being directed and dedicated to the film.**
