Lane Street Project: new dumping.

Today at Vick Cemetery:

We cancelled our clean-up Monday because of an icy forecast, but the Devil stays busy. The abuse of this sacred space continues, but we are not discouraged. We will report this dumping to the Public Works Department, redouble our encouragement of the city to properly care for and honor the cemetery’s dead, and continue to raise awareness as we clean Vick’s sister cemeteries.

  1. Great read Lisa, every member of Cemetery Commision needs to have access to this information coming from you. Well said maybe they will hear you.

    1. I’m going to mail you some of my cards. Feel free to pass them out to Commission members and ask to search the site if they want a deep dive into the history of Wilson’s Black cemeteries.
