Description


A cemetery of former slaves after the Civil War was created here, but through disregard by City designers they covered nearly 1500-1700 graves with city streets and highways. Only during the reconstruction of Central Expressway they were "rediscovered" and excavated and buried in additional land that was set aside for this purpose.

Thanks for reminding us of our more than occasional inhumanity to man - at least Dallas tried to make it right. Thanks, RR.

Nice photo montage Richard...I do agree that at least Dallas created this in an attempt to acknowledge the gross error in the thinking behind the planning of the highway
