Inscription.  
LaFayette Fate Richmond was born in 1864 & led the establishment of the North Louisiana Colored Agricultural Relief Association. The goal was to promote economic self-sufficiency for African Americans and racial uplift through Vocational training. The Association set about establishing an industrial school for the area's children and requested that Booker T. Washington send a teacher to operate the school. Washington then sent Charles P Adams who, along with the Association, founded the Colored Industrial and Agricultural School in 1901 which would later become Grambling State University.
