Please support our sisters and brothers at Macedonia Baptist Church in their fight to save the historic River Road African Cemetery. This cemetery houses the bodies of 1st generation freed Africans and their descendants. There are currently plans to build a parking garage on top of their bodies. We need to let the county know that we will not allow the desecration of this sacred ground.
