Restoring a Legacy .....

Historic Dempsey D. Butler Cemetery located in Camden NJ is a 144 year old African American and Civil War Union Soldier burial site.

Restoration is greatly needed to perserve this landmark and to revive a "forgotten Legacy" in the neighborhood of Centerville.

PLEASE join Friends of Butler Cemetery Association in restoring the Legacy by making a donation through Heart of Camden

OR you may donate building materials to replace hairpin fencing, benches, cemetery markers and walkways.

Thank you for your support!

On page 4 you will find interview comments made by "yours truly" re my documentary production experience which provided the spring board for the Butler Cemetery Documentary!

The article is titled " Hamilton Commons ‘Inspiring’ Fledgling Multimedia Producers"
In it I cite my reasons for producing the video ....
“I needed an impactful mode of communication to reach a large number of people,” Ukam said. “The story of historic Butler Cemetery needed to not just be told but seen. A picture speaks a thousand words! But a picture with a narrative — 10,000 more!"
