John Brown Lives! is a non-profit organization supporting human rights and social justice issues in the memory of Abolitionist John Brown. John Brown Lives! (JBL!) is a freedom education project founded in 1999 to promote social justice and human rights through the exploration of issues, social movements and events, many of them rooted in Adirondack history. Through the tools of community and regional history, John Brown Lives! initiates wide-ranging progressive discussions about our times and encourages scholars, writers, artists, educators, and students to recover overlooked or forgotten chapters in the region’s “freedom history” in ways that reveal their connection to both our national narrative and current struggles for justice and equality.
