Who We Are
We are a coalition committed to stopping the desecration of the historic Moses African Cemetery on River Road in Bethesda, MD and memorializing the people buried there
The Bethesda African Cemetery Coalition (BACC) seeks atonement for past injustices, sanctification of a final resting place for 1st generation free Africans in the United States and their predecessors who died in bondage, and the celebration of the individuals, their accomplishments, and the once-thriving African community they established in Bethesda within 5 years of Emancipation.
