This captivating book, written by Marilyn Nolte and Verdis L. Robinson, features the stories of many African-Americans who lived in Rochester and are buried in Mount Hope Cemetery.
"We bestow upon them the title of Mounts of Hope, for they came to Rochester, New York with an enduring optimism, endless courage, the ability to overcome obstacles, to labor for their bread, to fight for their beliefs, to make contributions to their community, and throughout their lives maintain mountains of hope for their future and that of their children. It is fitting that they rest permanently in a cemetery with the name, Mount Hope."
