KNOXVILLE, TN At noon, on Tuesday, July 22, at the East Tenn. Historical Society, 601 South Gay Street, a group of Knoxville citizens working to preserve the Freedmen's Mission Historic Cemetery, located on the Knoxville College campus, will give a lecture and slide show that will highlight the history of the cemetery and tell the stories of some of the fascinating and important people interred there.
Nestled on a knoll behind historic Knoxville College, the Freedmen’s Mission Historic Cemetery is a valuable community asset. The graves here tell the history of life in Knoxville’s African American community. Its educational aspects allow students to learn more about the many notable persons buried here---from two former slaves owned by President Johnson to the first black doctors in this area, from prominent educators to founding families.
