The Friends of East End is an all-volunteer nonprofit working to reclaim East End Cemetery, a historic African American burial ground, from nature and neglect. With the help of thousands of other volunteers, we seek to transform the cemetery into a public site of memory, contemplation, and beauty that honors Richmond's black community and history.
"...[A] visually dynamic, interactive resource that features photographs made at East End as well as archival images from public-domain sources and from relatives of the deceased; primary documents about the cemetery and the people buried there; and narratives that we create from these materials. The site is also designed to accept content from users—photos, documents, stories."
