The National Burial Database of Enslaved Americans (NABDEA) will be the first national repository for burials of individuals enslaved in the United States.  This public resource will engage communities in documenting and preserving burial grounds and sacred spaces of the enslaved.  Learn more about the work to create the NABDEA by viewing the report Memory & Landmarks.

The National Burial Database of Enslaved Americans is a project of the Periwinkle Humanities Initiative (PHI)  - and is co-designed by Second Story - the interactive design studio.

This project is currently in development - and is not accepting burial submissions
at this time.
