QUOTE: Common “Selma is now”


“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
my humanity.

Selma is now.”

QUOTE: Ralph Waldo Emerson


“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
