Love Cemetery: Unburying the Secret History of Slaves
China Galland (au)
By the eve of the Civil War, there were 4 million slaves in N. Amer., and Harrison County was the largest slave-owning county in Texas. So when Galland returned to research her family history there, she learned of unmarked cemeteries for slaves. Her subsequent effort to help restore just one of these cemeteries -- Love Cemetery -- unearths a quintessential American story of prejudice, land theft, and environ. destruction, uncovering racial wounds that are slow to heal. She also encounters some remarkable, inspiring characters in local history. By telling this story of interracial and intergenerational cooperation, Galland provides a model of communal remembering and reconciliation that can begin to heal the deep racial scars of our nation.
