"The inspiration to paint the John Brown series was motivated by historical events as told to us by adults of our community...the black community. The relating of these events for many of us, was not only very informative but also most exciting to us. The men and women of these stories were strong, daring and heroic."

-Jacob Lawrence, American painter (1917-2000)
