Tombstone near entrance to cemetery

This grave is near the entrance to the cemetery, where the political and cultural figures of the city are buried. Its ornate, artistic style contributes to the tranquil atmosphere of the environment, more a place of solitude and beauty than a harsh reminder of death. This headstone also reveals a stratification of race even after death, as those set aside for blacks are smaller and unkempt.
