Authors Elaine Buck and Beverly Mills are former board members of the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association, a cemetery purchased by three black men in the early 19th century to bury Blacks with honor and dignity. Their accumulated stories consecrate the collected lives of a minority Black community in a predominantly White region. The book provides a unique window to African- Americans in New Jersey previously missing from the historical record. Beverly Mills is the first African American woman to hold the elected position as Councilwoman in Pennington Borough and Elaine Buck is Church Clerk for the Second Calvary Baptist Church of Hopewell.
