Quote from the late great Unita Blackwell

Blackwell v. Issaquena Board of Education

“Change depends on people knowing the truth. Change depends on people speaking that truth out loud. That’s what movements do. Movements educate people to the truth… Movements are the way ordinary people get more freedom and justice.”

— Unita Blackwell, Barefootin’: Life Lessons from the Road to Freedom (2006)
