In this Friday, Oct. 20, 2017 photo, a monument to honor African-Americans who were buried in unmarked graves in the previously segregated Alta Vista Cemetery is wrapped by cemetery superintendent Tommy Casper after being displayed for a photo in Gainesville, Ga. The previously unmarked graves of more than 1,100 black souls buried in the cemetery will be honored with a memorial to be dedicated Sunday. Recently, the city discovered the extent of the unmarked graves using ground-penetrating radar. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
