Week 9

Our teen apprentices took a trip to Home Depot to learn the process of submitting Purchase Orders for supplies…and their boards for painting their murals were ordered. Also stopped by the historic Lincoln Memorial Park Cemetery. Noted pioneers buried in Lincoln Memorial include Kelsey Pharr, a renowned Black funeral director who purchased Lincoln Memorial in 1937; Dr. William Sawyer, Miami-Dade’s first Black physician and founder of Christian Hospital; H.E.S. Reeves, founder of the Miami Times, the county’s oldest Black-owned newspaper; D.A. Dorsey, Miami’s first Black millionaire; and Rev. John Culmer, rector of the Historical St. Agnes Episcopal Church in Overtown. Lincoln Memorial is known for its above-ground burial vaults.
