Oakland Cemetery is the final resting place of more than 70,000 Atlantans. The enslaved and their enslavers, the oppressed and their oppressors, the empowered and those who sought to take that power away – all rest beneath the gravestones and gardens of Oakland. Historic Oakland Foundation is committed to truth-telling and sharing the whole history of Atlanta, especially the injustices faced by many of its citizens.
We stand in solidarity with all Black people in the fight against racial injustice and inequality. As a historic site, we have the responsibility to recognize and challenge historic oppression. As a city park, we strive to make Oakland more inclusive, accessible, and sustainable for everyone. As members of the Atlanta community, we will listen to and support our fellow Atlantans as we all fight for real and lasting change.
