New Legislation Seeks To Protect Lost African-American Burial Grounds
12/26/2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
If the bill should pass, the network would create a nationwide database of historic African American burial grounds, provide technical assistance to record and evaluate these spaces, establish educational materials for local community members, and make grants available for further research at sites within the network. Through these measures the bill is intended to “help communities identify and record burial grounds and preserve local history while better informing development decisions and community planning.”
