Black History Month--African Burial Ground

I'm definitely of the opinion, as are many others, that we celebrate our heritage all year long :)

However, in honor of Black History Month, I'd like to make sure local readers--and others who might drive through Knoxville on I-40--know about a great little spot west of Knoxville: an African Burial Ground. Since I've already written about all the details, I'll just send you to the post! See Here.

I was so happy to find this little jewel of history in my own backyard. Some pics:

Wow. Just wow.

I can only imaging how haunting this sacred ground is. The stories that these souls would tell. Bless them and may they rest in peace.
