History lives inside the ‘Colored People Cemetery’
Tour covers largest African-American cemetery in Bulloch
With morning light streaming through red stained glass windows, Soloman Smart listens to a brief history of Thomas Grove Missionary Baptist Church before participating in a tour of the old "Colored People Cemetery," now known as A.C. Dunlap Memorial Cemetery, on Saturday, Feb. 15. Smart's grandmother is buried in the cemetery.
