The Red Hill Cemetery Project is officially registered on the Black Cemetery Network’s Site Directory and Archive.

The Black Cemetery Network (BCN) is a platform for highlighting activities to identify, interpret, preserve, and record African American burial grounds and their histories. These sites have been abandoned, neglected, erased, and continually underrecognized throughout the U.S. Our network provides a space for honoring sacred spaces and sharing stories and resources to raise awareness about the marginalization of black cemeteries as a national concern. Black cemeteries are sites of knowledge which are currently underrepresented in the national dialogue. As a means of expanding these efforts, the network is a hub for locating, preserving, and recording black cemetery sites and associated community histories to ensure they are not lost.
