Ground-penetrating radar has detected what appear to be more than 120 coffins under an apartment complex in Tampa, the remains of the lost cemetery revealed by the Tampa Bay Times.

The 2½-acre, segregation-era burial ground, believed to be the city’s first for African-Americans, was built in 1901 along the 3700 block of Florida Ave. and extended back around 400 feet.

It disappeared nearly a century ago when the land was parceled off for white developments.

Dallas Doing Good

Dr. George Keaton spent 31 years devoting his life to the students of Dallas ISD as a teacher and guidance counselor, but when he learned about the black history preservation movement in Dallas, he found another purpose. His work with Remembering Black Dallas, INC. includes preserving oral history, creating awareness through tours, and maintaining Dallas’ first integrated graveyard.

Dallas Doing Good

“My grandmother was a great historian. She talked about her husband’s family a lot – the Turner family…She worked for her father-in-law, who was a former slave, who had 90 acres near where the Cooper Center is now. She weighed the cotton and kept the books…she built those interests into me; she made me who I am today,” Keaton remembered.
