Shawn Utsey, “Shockhoe Bottom, Lumpkin’s Jail, and the Negro Burial Ground.”
Dr. Utsey spoke about the experience with the burial ground and what can be learned from the area. One view says let’s memorialize – others want to excavate. A cultural and class issue seems to be at the root of this divide. Who will be heard?
He showed a six minute piece of his documentary “Meet Me At the Bottom” Which will premier in October 2009 in Richmond. A spirited give and take ensued after the viewing ensued.
