“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


“To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker.”

- Frederick Douglass


“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.”

- Abraham Lincoln

“There is an urgent need to reaffirm and advance the core principles of the civil rights movement. This isn’t an issue of left versus right. The defining question of our time is: How do we break through the demonization and division, and find the courage to move forward together, as Americans?”
