Red River Sankofa Project -- seeks
to research, document and preserve underreported African American burial grounds
in NW Louisiana and NE Texas. The area of focus, a rather remote, but bountiful
region along the upper Red River of Louisiana and along the Texas Louisiana

of African Americans who originally settled the area. We are also extremely
interested in genealogical ties to this place and have been collecting and
publishing data some find useful for family research.
