Naming Names: African-American Soldiers and Veterans of the San Marcos-Blanco Cemetery

Wednesday, September 11, 2019

During the late 1800s through the mid-1900s, segregated cemeteries sprang up across the United States. As emblems of institutional racism in America, segregated cemeteries expose an uncomfortable collective history. These cemeteries have now become targeted for erasure. This project, presented by historian T. Jane Heffelfinger, documents and recognizes the heroism, sacrifice, and history of African-American soldiers and veterans interred in the San Marcos-Blanco Cemetery.
