Join us to plant rainbow flags at the Woodlawn Cemetery graves of vaudeville stars, suffragists, Harlem Renaissance figures, artists, writers and other LGBT individuals who are buried at the cemetery. The tour will be led by project co-directors, including Columbia University professor Andrew Dolkart and former Landmarks Commission historian Jay Shockley.
