Among those now buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery are authors, journalists, jurists, lawyers, politicians, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs, activists, and reformers that help to illustrate the African American experience in Boston and beyond during the 19th and 20th centuries.  In February the Friends of Mount Auburn launched an interpretive trail in the form of a booklet and mobile app to celebrate the lives and legacies of seventeen individuals significant in telling this story.  Join us for a guided tour of the graves of these revolutionary men and women.
