The Tift College of Education of Mercer University (in partnership with the Johns Creek Historical Society) was awarded a Georgia Humanities grant for the project “They Were Here: Preservation and Commemoration of the Macedonia African American Methodist Church Cemetery of Johns Creek.” The grant was awarded to Johns Creek High School students in producing a series of documentaries about the history of the Macedonia African Methodist Church Cemetery of Johns Creek. The projects staff and participants are now excited to share the fruits of their labor. On January 27 the project will hold a Community Celebration four-part screening from 5pm to 7pm at Johns Creek High School. Check it out if you’re in the area!
