Unmarked is a short documentary that tells the stories of neglected African American cemeteries and enslaved burial sites across the Commonwealth. Join the Academy Center of the Arts in Lynchburg for a free public screening of the film, followed immediately by a panel discussion featuring the filmmakers, historians, and advocates. The event will also include live music and poetry.

“Their efforts are a reclamation of the histories that have been buried and neglected by a dominant society keener on commemorating the slavers instead of the enslaved.”
