Lucama Post Office

The small town of Lucama, North Carolina, literally buried in the ground thousand of records to hide discriminatory practices by town officials against black residents.

According to Newsweek:

The lawsuit, which was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina, states that Uzzell and three other residents of the town “were subjected to discriminatory and unconstitutional treatment by the Town of Lucama because of their race or color and/or or their opposition to race and color and other impermissible kinds of discrimination and unconstitutional treatment.”

Lucama is a very small town located south-southeast of Raleigh, its population, as of 2010, is 1108.
