“I am the hopeful black woman who
was denied her right to vote.
I am the caring white supporter
killed on the front lines of freedom.
I am the unarmed black kid who
maybe needed a hand but was
instead given a bullet.
Selma has awakened
Selma is now.”
(* Common and John Legend Win the 2015 Golden Globe for Best Original Song – Motion Picture.)

not in seeking new landscapes, but
in having new eyes.”
