Mark 4:39

On Palm Sunday, 1963 Rev. N. H. Smith, Rev. John T. Porter and Rev. A. D. King led a sympathy march from St. Paul United Methodist Church down 6th Avenue North in support of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Rev. Ralph Abernathy who were in jail. 2,000 marchers assembled behind Smith, Porter and King like a "storm cloud". The march climaxed at Kelly Ingram Park where the marchers were met by billy clubs and police dogs. In the heat of the event these three ministers knelt to pray. This statue was built to capture the photograph taken at that event. These three ministers, along with other clergy and laypersons, were at the core of the movement that changed the world.

This plaque installed in memory of these ministers by Reverend Anthony "Alann" Johnson, grandson of Rev. N. H. Smith and The City of Birmingham
