Slaves Sold Here, Center City, Philadelphia

Africans were once sold and buried here, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, 6/12/17, at p. B1 ( Juneteenth is growing, with friction, by Mensah M. Dean). I can't find anything about this on the Web. The Wikipedia entry says this was the site of the first manned flight in the Americas, via hot air balloon.
