Preserving Our African Heritage

My guest today has been on a crusade in Montgomery County trying to save the only African American cemetery in Bethesda that is the final resting place for enslaved Africans.  Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo – Bethesda African Cemetery Coalition

The Bethesda African Cemetery Coalition is working to stop the destruction of the Moses African Cemetery.  The cemetery is being demolished to make way for new construction in the county.  The coalition has been calling on the county executive to stop the effort because enslaved Africans are still buried on the site.  The location to meet is 5214 River Rd. Bethesda, MD.
