Gravesite of Maggie L. Walker, whose home is an NHS, disfigured by suspected racist graffiti

Stewards of historic Jewish and African American cemeteries in Richmond’s East End who discovered graffiti Monday on gravesites, including that of Maggie L. Walker, suspect that hatred could have motivated the vandalism.


While trespassing at the East End and Evergreen cemeteries is not uncommon, the neon green spray-painting of “777” around Walker’s grave in Evergreen and in the Sir Moses Montefiore Cemetery appalled caretakers and descendants. At East End, which is adjacent to Evergreen, vandals spray-painted stones and a pathway.
