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
