Restoring History, Together: MLK Day of Service


A Morning of Service and Celebration at Historic Evergreen Cemetery

In celebration of the national MLK Day of Service, volunteers will be clearing weeds and recording grave information as we restore grace and glory to the final resting place for thousands of heroes who emerged from the shadow of slavery and segregation and became beacons of American achievement. We will also be making a special announcement about the permanent protection of Evergreen as a sacred public space that represents our shared values of freedom, service, and opportunity.

Schedule:
9am – 11am: Clean up
11am-12pm: Choir and Speakers (featuring the Virginia Union University Choir)

Parking shuttles run from 8am-1pm, so drop by anytime! The event will have a heated tent and free hot beverages.
