Among those now buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery are key representatives of the African American experience in Boston and beyond during the 19th and 20th centuries. Recently 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 Volunteer Docent Stephen Pinkerton for a short indoor presentation in Story Chapel followed by a guided tour of the graves of these extraordinary men and women on the anniversary of the birth of former Boston resident Martin Luther King.
