Do you have a historic African American cemetery in your community? Do you have ancestors buried in an African American cemetery? Are you worried about maintenance, access, or the upkeep of graves? We want to hear from you!
At the direction of the Maryland General Assembly, the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture and MHT are working together to study the needs of the state’s historic African American cemeteries, with feedback from stakeholders including the Coalition to Protect Maryland Burial Sites, Preservation Maryland, descendant communities, and the general public.
Please help us by completing this survey and share the link with others who may be interested in participating. To learn more about this important project, visit: https://bit.ly/3ECnmmV.
