Rosa Parks Poll

The time when you need to do something is when no one else is willing to do it, when people are saying it can’t be done.

If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she’d still be standing.

Racial tensions are a major problem in the states in which the church burnings took place.

Stereotyped by the media, ignored by politicians, young poor black males face almost insurmountable obstacles to fulfilling the American dream.

Everywhere, African-Americans are stopped far out of their proportion in any of the communities policed.

When you have police officers who abuse citizens, you erode public confidence in law enforcement. That makes the job of good police officers unsafe.

Civil rights opened the windows. When you open the windows, it does not mean that everybody will get through. We must create our own opportunities

  2. I recognized your voice and ran in the room to watch you on Amanpour and Company. Your insight and clarity on the legacy of John Lewis is powerful. I want to let you know how much I appreciated your counsel and support during the Pacifica protests. Thank you for all you do to better ourselves and our country.
