The Oldest African American Cemetery west of the Mississippi River, Quinette Cemetery.
Kirkwood Missouri has the distinction of and regarded as having the oldest African American Cemetery west of the Mississippi River. Quinette Cemetery is a historic landmark located in Kirkwood Missouri, a suburb of the city of St. Louis.
It is one of only five slave burial grounds in Missouri and the resting place of many African American Civil War soldiers. It is believed there are 125-150 slaves and soldiers buried here, and most in unmarked graves. On a recent walk through this wooded oasis in Kirkwood, I saw blue birds and a lone hawk flew over calling out. I stopped to read the plaques at the gate and there is a nice memorial inside with a bench to sit and be thoughtful of the five known veterans who are buried here.
South African photographer David Goldblatt is famous for his reportage during the apartheid. In 1975 he started an original series depicting detailed photographs of body parts which were published in the book, "Particulars." As a tribute to this great artist, I'll show you a series of close-up photographs of hands. Stay tuned!
