Calls grow for Flatbush burial ground memorial ahead of Juneteenth

Earlier this month, Muba Yarofulani made the trip across central Brooklyn, from her East New York residence, to a vacant plot of land at 2286 Church Ave., in Flatbush. Yarofulani, along with dozens of other Black Brooklynites and white allies, know very well what was discovered under that vacant land. And, they said, they want to put an end to the city’s plans to develop it.
