At community gathering, UR and VCU to unveil digital map of East End Cemetery

April 20, 2018

Over the past year, students and faculty from Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Richmond have been collaborating to clean up and conduct research at Richmond’s East End Cemetery, a long-neglected and overgrown burial site of thousands of African-Americans that dates back to 1897.

The findings of the East End Cemetery Collaboratory will be presented at a community gathering on Friday, April 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center at 2903 Q St. The event is free and open to the public
