Lane Street Project is a community initiative dedicated to the documentation and preservation of three African-American cemeteries. In so doing, we also work to highlight and celebrate the history and culture of East Wilson.
If you missed the MLK Weekend Kick-Off, you have two chances this month to join Lane Street Project’s Community Cemetery Clean-Ups! Our ancestors ARE Black History. What better way to honor their legacy?
Lane Street Project invites all of Wilson to join its Community Clean-Ups at Odd Fellows Cemetery, 2100 Bishop L.N. Forbes St. Please bring hand tools, trash bags, and gloves to help clip vines and small tree limbs, rake debris, remove trash, and search for hidden headstones. Masks and social distancing required.
