Abstract:

"What do a white abolitionist, a black fraternal organization, and rhythm and blues have in common? The answer to that seeming riddle is an obscure tract of farm property in south-central Maryland know as "John Brown's Farm." That property had hosted John Brown's tactical preparations for his 1859 raid on the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, which begat America's Civil War, which begat the abolition of slavery. A century later it served as the National Shrine for an influential black fraternal organization, the IBPOEW ("Black Elks") at the height of its considerable political power. It was also a beloved stop on "the Chitlin' Circuit." Among the artists who performed there were Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and James Brown -- the giants of rhythm and blues. It became a summertime magnet attracting thousands of young black people from a fifty mile radius and beyond."--Johnbrownsfarm.com.
