Ancestor Appreciation Day At St. Agnes

The Schuyler Flatts Burial Ground Project was created to provide an honorable, dignified and respectful burial for the human skeletal remains of 14 African Americans found in Colonie.

Last year, The LOW foundation was finally able to move forward in obtaining a collection of slave remains that had been lying dormant in the NY State Museum.

The remains were once enslaved by a branch of Albany’s Schuyler Family at their mansion.

The foundation made it their mission to bury all 14 of them with dignity and respect. The community response was overwhelming donations poured in and artists responded to design burial containers.

A resolution drawn up by Assemblyman John McDonald will also be read at the Ceremony deeming June 19, 2017 as Ancestor Appreciation Day recognized by Governor Cuomo.


Free transportation will be available courtesy of CDTA with a pick up from 9am-945am at Best for Less located at 275 Clinton Avenue (the corner of Lark Street and Clinton Avenue in Albany)

The event will take place at St. Agnes Cemetery (48 Cemetery Ave, Menands).
