Star Cemetery

Established in 1883, Star Cemetery is the first cemetery organized by and for Shreveport's African-American citizens. The cemetery is a treasure for the entire Shreveport community.

Some gravestones of African-Americans are assumed to be of those born into slavery, as early as 1815. The site is also the final resting placing for blacks who served in the military, including 1 man who fought in the Civil War.
