A Day of Remembrance: Margaret Lane Cemetery

Join The Alliance for Historic Hillsborough, The Northern Orange NAACP, and Music Maker Relief Foundation for A Day of Remembrance. The program will feature a talk by historian Vera Cecelski and performances by local gospel artists The Kings of Harmony and The Branchettes. The event will culminate with a community procession through the Riverwalk to Margaret Lane Cemetery where handmade flowers will be “planted” in honor of the enslaved men and women buried there.

A public flower making event will take place at the Earth Evening celebration at the Farmers Market Pavilion on April 26 from 6 - 8 and at Gold Park on May 18th at 2:00 preceding the Day of Remembrance event.
