Abstract:
The loss of Sycamore Hill Missionary Baptist Church, noted center for black activity in Greenville, was also a loss for the greater community it long supported. With an intent to celebrate rather than mourn, though, was “Beyond Bricks and Mortar,” an oral history project coordinated by Joyner Library. This project revealed the lives of generations of black residents who contributed to the development of Greenville. Also acknowledging their presence in the community was Sam Barber’s A Journey for Purchasing and Naming the Brown Hill Cemetery. His book chronicled the initiative to transfer bodies of those buried in the church’s cemetery to nearby Brown Hill Cemetery.
