A Way to Keep from Losing Our History

Robin Patton and Gloria Gilmore will talk about the “cemetery days” that One Shared Story has organized working through African- American churches and local historical societies and how best to use what people know about a cemetery along with mobile resources to be suppliers of location data to DHR.
