John Brown Lives! presents
“Beacon of Hope” by Wesley Wofford
July 5, 2024 Ribbon-cutting at the John Brown Farm State Historic Site

From the sculptor’s website:

“The Beacon of Hope” is a monument that tells Harriet Tubman’s continuing story; that amplifies her message of equality, so that all may hear it; and that chronicles her journey. It is our hope that generations of children and adults alike will find the inspiration and the courage to walk in her footsteps and draw strength from the powerful story of one of our great american heroes, finding it within themselves to become “The Beacon of Hope” for others.
