"Posterity will owe everlasting thanks to John Brown for lifting up once more to the gaze of a nation grown fat and flabby on the garbage of lust and oppression, a true standard of heroic philanthropy, and each coming generation will pay its installment of the debt. . . . John Brown saw slavery through no mist or cloud, but in a light of infinite brightness, which left no one of its ten thousand horrors concealed." Frederick Douglass

A Good Result
A Revised Title for the NURFC Program on John Brown

On behalf of the John Brown community and certainly my readers, I would like to extend my thanks to Mr. Richard Cooper of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for kindly hearing and acting upon the constructive criticism offered by Jean Libby, me, and others who have written to him and/or the NURFC about the title of its upcoming program on John Brown.

The website formerly read:

THE ENEMY WITHIN Gallery Talk: John Brown
November 13, 2010 02:30 PM
Join Interpretive Services Manager Richard Cooper for an in-gallery conversation discussing on of America’s most infamous domestic terrorists: abolitionist John Brown. Presented in conjunction with The Enemy Within. 
Happily, it now reads:


Gallery Talk: John Brown

November 13, 2010 02:30 PM
Join Interpretive Services Manager Richard Cooper for an in-gallery conversation discussing abolitionist John Brown. 


We appreciate this adjustment and trust that Brown likewise will be fairly represented despite the overarching theme of domestic terrorism entitled, "The Enemy Within," presented just prior to Mr. Cooper's discussion.

We further encourage people to attend the NURFC and its programs and will post available news and information about Mr. Cooper's presentation if available.
