African American history, Memphis, and Elmwood Cemetery.
Have you wondered about the rich, diverse African American history found at Elmwood Cemetery? At rest in Elmwood are the men and women of the Civil Rights Movement, business leaders, a nun being considered for sainthood, musicians, novelists, politicians, civic leaders, and more. We invite you to join us for an hour-long, seated, indoor presentation, where you can learn about the African American history of Elmwood Cemetery.
This presentation is given by long-time volunteer Mable Barringer. This presentation begins at 2:00 pm in the Chapel. Masks will be REQUIRED indoors. The cost is $20 per person, and all proceeds benefit historic Elmwood Cemetery.
