BRLC volunteers clean cemetery, honor King for MLK Day

The Poplar Spring Baptist Missionary Baptist Church Historical Cemetery project is one of purpose and dignity, due to its long-standing stature as a place of great historical wealth. Sometimes we forget the great path our ancestors have laid for us to follow when it deals with love and respect for humanity. Many ancestors laid to rest there, was once filled with tears, laughter, joys, sadness, oppressions, many life stories and much more. We have an opportunity to keep their names alive in our hearts and to keep the place where they have been laid to rest memorialized. Fathers, mothers, babies, teenagers, free and enslaved.
