Six Pensacola-area veterans will take to the stage this weekend for two performances of “Telling: Pensacola."

The first performance will be held at the University of West Florida Center for Fine and Performing Arts this Saturday, Nov. 7 at 6:30 p.m., 11000 University Parkway.

For the past year, the University of West Florida Archaeology Institute has taken the lead on a grant project entitled By These Hands: The Vernacular Markers of Pensacola’s Historic African American Cemeteries.

The information collected is being used to weave together previously untold stories of the burial grounds and the people in them.

The Telling Project is coming to Pensacola in November. For the project, the Florida Humanities Council is seeking active duty military, veterans, and their family members who would like to share their stories. The deadline to apply is this Friday, July 10.
