‘I have to shout that the land we stand on is Seneca Village,’ Lizzo told the 60K strong audience.

“Before it was Central Park, it was Seneca Village. And if you don’t know what it is, that was a prosperous African American community that lived here [between 1825-1857]. And they were evicted and bulldozed so they could build this park.”

About 1,600 mostly black residents were reportedly expelled from Central Park under an eminent preserve in 1857.
