“As we begin the dawning of renewed recognition and appreciation for the contributions of African Americans, I hasten to remind all people of goodwill of their responsibility to never accept or acquiesce to hatred and evil. All it takes for evil to take root and prosper is for women and men of goodwill to remain docile and quiet in the face of injustice. We should, therefore, gird ourselves up to resist, to challenge, to fight, and ultimately to defeat any attempt to terrorize, discriminate, or disenfranchise any member of the family of humanity. Our resolve must be beyond question and reproach.” – Robert L. Wallace
