Happy Juneteenth 2023!

The everyday work of Lane Street Project is honoring and uplifting the memory of our ancestors. In these cemeteries, we come closest to the lives of men and women who greeted freedom in 1865. This Juneteenth we rededicate ourselves to the hard work of reclaiming and protecting their resting places.
