In the Fall semester of 2014, under the leadership of Dr. Stanley Hyland, Applied Anthropology Graduate Seminar students of the University of Memphis collaborated with community liaisons, community members, and other stakeholders on the restoration and preservation of cemeteries across the city of Memphis. The project was especially focused on historic African American cemeteries in the city that have suffered neglect or abandonment and explored various approaches to bringing the cemeteries back into the hands of the community through grassroots restoration and place-making efforts. The following documentary details some of the highlights of the project, including project methodologies and insights from participants: Documentary Link
