Macon in Bibb County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Unknown, But Not Forgotten
"Somehow, the fact that they were people, human beings created as much in the image of God as any, tends to get lost in that word, slave. They are considered a different species by some, best forgotten swept from memory and relegated to the unmarked, unsought graves where their remains lie unacknowledged all over the South."
