Summary
Due to the important cultural role they have played in African American life and their relative economic independence in their communities, African American funeral directors have played a unique role in American society, often "serving the living as much as they buried the dead." Smith (history, George Mason U.) examines the role that African American funeral directors played in promoting racial equality during the 20th century, particularly focusing on the activities of funeral directors' professional associations and their interactions with the Civil Rights movement and its organizations.
