A new partnership honors the legacy of enslaved people buried in the Barbee Cemetery

A new partnership between the business school, University Commission on History, Race and a Way Forward and local families works to honor the 120 enslaved people who were buried in the Barbee Cemetery. The Clark family, descended from the first Black family in Carrboro, is happy to finally have their story shared. “Oftentimes, there are groups created that want to do good in the Black community,” Lorie Clark said. “But they never include people who were harmed, are marginalized, or are hurt by what has happened. This is a great opportunity to bring the relatives of the enslaved people, who were buried in the cemetery, into the process to voice what we want and the way that we want this information lifted up.”

The global community needs to continue thinking about how we can encourage developing pandemic preparedness.”
