white activists took the first freedom ride 50 years ago. they got on a bus and headed to the deep south to protest segregated interstate travel. that was 1961. now something you can find just over 100 miles from here. makes you wonder what year is it? this is a graveyard that has the "n" word carved into headstones. they are in a cemetery not too far from the state capitol in el dorado county. now a state agent is apologizing. why those headstones are still there. >> reporter: it is said that we bury our past but for community activist ralph white. >> nobody would want a word like this over their grandmother. >> he is referring to this tiny cemetery in el dorado hills where the ugliest part of our nation's past isn't buried but on full display.

6:03 pm
with the n word. not well, in fact the county's administration denied an on camera interview. harris wants to know who they are talking to. >> i asked the county, is there any documentation of what you plan on doing in the cemetery? >> no documentation. >> right now it is the army corps of engineers making news. admitting responsibility after nearly six decades saying we are deeply ashamed and regretful to find this word in our records. our hearts tell us these grave markers should be replaced but the grave markers are no longer their responsibility. instead, responsibility lies with el dorado county. and they have no time line on when the n word will be removed. >> i would be willing to die for something like this. >> reporter: to ralph white,

controls, state and federal laws an contracts including lease agreements which we follow at all times. while there are legitimate reasons why a bank might drill into a safe deposit box and seize the contents he says none of them apply to him. banks don't ensure safety deposit box contents so he considered and did not buy a special policy because of a catch-all clause. >> in that insurance policy it also said they didn't cover mysterious disappearances and i think now -- and they wouldn't tell me what that means. i think i now know what that means. >> reporter: s sc ott says he doesn't even know what the bank seized in the box that used to belong to him. maybe it was a diamond broach or maybe nothing at all. what he did loos was trust. >> it can still bite you in ways you don't expect. >> reporter: don knapp in palo alto, cbs5.
