Who We Are

The Friends of East End is an all-volunteer nonprofit working to reclaim East End Cemetery, a historic African American burial ground, from nature and neglect. With the help of thousands of other volunteers, we seek to transform the cemetery into a public site of memory, contemplation, and beauty that honors Richmond’s black community and history.
