Florida Conversations: African American Burial Grounds and Remembering Project

Listeners of the Genealogy Guys Podcast are familiar with the Zion Cemetery Project on which Drew and George are involved. The video below was recently made at a meeting about the African American Burial Grounds and Remembering Project at the Tampa Bay History Center in Tampa, Florida. The video includes status reports about work on several cemeteries in the Tampa Bay area, and it includes very powerful spoken word presentations commemorating the people who are interred there.

Find out how people across the country and the Tampa Bay area can counter Black cemetery erasures. Dr. Antoinette Jackson, USF professor, chair of USF’s Department of Anthropology and founder of the Black Cemetery Network, leads this important Florida Conversations from the History Center’s TECO Hall.
