Lane Street Project: reclaiming a sacred space.

Thanks to Wilson Daily Times for continued coverage of Vick Cemetery developments.

I am advised by Councilwoman Gillettia Morgan that a land survey to mark and map Vick Cemetery is underway and surveillance cameras have been in place since March 2023. Also, the City will place two copies of the GPR survey on file at Wilson County Public Library.

We deeply appreciate these first steps to the reclamation of Vick Cemetery.

Stay tuned for more information about the City’s actions at Vick; an upcoming Zoom meeting of Vick Cemetery Descendants and Allies; LSP’s Juneteenth activities; and the re-consecration of Vick Cemetery.


  1. Continue reclaiming sacred grounds in our African American cemeteries on Lane Street. Very important to our next generation.
