  Description     The film  
A historic Black cemetery was rehabilitated in Priceville, Ontario in 1989-1990. Alan and Helen Miller, descendants of former Black residents, became involved in the project in order to look for family information. They say that Blacks have long understood that they are not welcome in parts of the area. Includes videotape of restoration activities.
