Freedman's Cemetery Memorial: A Place of Healing

May 13, 2001

“Freedman’s Cemetery Memorial: A Place of Healing,” documents the transformation of a desecrated burial ground for former slaves and their descendents in Dallas into a monument to African-American heritage. An original production from KERA-Dallas/Ft. Worth, the documentary reflects the spirituality of Freedman’s Cemetery Memorial and also offers a timeless message of hope. The local community’s effort to rescue the cemetery from a forgotten past offers inspiration and motivation to other racially divided communities.

Produced by Katie Sherrod; Directed by Joel Norman
