Author Lynn Rainville, former History Professor and Dean of Sweet Briar College, travels through the forgotten African American cemeteries of central VA to recover information crucial to the stories of the Black families who lived and worked there for over two hundred years.  The subjects of her research are hidden residents, people who are typically underrepresented in historical research but whose stories are essential for a complete understanding of our national past.  She analyzes documents, such as obituaries, wills, and letters, as well as gravesites.
