NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING

An annual tradition since 1970, Day of Mourning is a solemn, spiritual and highly political day.

Over the years, participants in Day of Mourning have buried Plymouth Rock a number of times, boarded the Mayflower replica, and placed ku klux klan sheets on the statue of William Bradford,
