The Texas Institute for the Preservation of History and Culture presents the Olivewood Cemetery: Gone But Not Forgotten Exhibit.
Olivewood was incorporated in 1875, 10 years after emancipation arrived for Texas slaves. Nestled against a bend of White Oak Bayou in Houston’s First Ward lays Olivewood Cemetery, the first incorporated African American cemetery where former slaves, veterans, and other prominent figures are resting.
Come view this display of photographs, names, artifacts, and view film screenings of “The Abolitionist” and “Slavery by Another Name”
