Check out this video about East End Cemetery published this evening by the BBC:

East End Cemetery was once a dignified final resting spot for prominent black citizens in the Richmond Virginia area.

In the days of segregated cemeteries, East End was lovingly maintained. But it has since fallen into disrepair.

Now a group of concerned citizens are trying to reclaim the space and the memories of those who are laid to rest there.
