Here John Brown aimed at human slavery a blow that woke a guilty nation. With him fought seven slaves and sons of slaves. Over his crucified corpse marched 200,000 black soldiers and 4,000,000 freedmen singing "John Brown's body lies a-mouldering in the grave but his soul goes marching on!"

In gratitude this tablet is erected the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People May 21, 1932
