Black Bottom Cemetery Update

The grave of Little Eva (Eva Narcissus Boyd), who sang "Locomotion", has had a new marker installed. The grave was marked by a funeral home stake, then the city installed a wooden cross, and now the final stone marker has been unveiled. It's part of the restoration and clean up at Black Bottom. In further news, the vaults with the most damage, which had humans remains visible, will soon be stabilized and the human remains have been either removed (temporarily) or re-buried within the original crypt.
I've been told conflicting stories as to whether or not she is buried in Black Bottom Cemetery.  I'll provide more details later in another post.
