Mount Auburn Cemetery’s Contemporary African-American Heritage
In honor of Juneteenth, volunteer docent Stephen Pinkerton will lead a walking tour to pay tribute to African-Americans who were buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery in the last 50 years. Notables include jazz clarinetist and band leader, Edmond Hall; Dr. Linda Datcher Loury, Tufts University professor and pioneering scholar of social economics; and Yvonne Gregory, poet and co-author of the 1951 We Charge Genocide petition to the UN.
