About the Grant

$25,000 for The Negro Burial Ground (MAP 1993) by composer Leroy Jenkins and librettist Ann T. Greene. This new cantata, inspired by the 1991 rediscovery of the African Burial Ground, juxtaposes its World of the Dead with the entrance of the New Dead-three New York City residents killed in the 1980’s. A photographic installation by Patricia Satterlee- “An Artist’s Response to the African Burial Ground” accompanied the performance run.
