African-American civil rights activist
"I'm tired of being treated like a second-class citizen."
"I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free... so other people would be also free."
"Whatever my individual desires were to be free, I was not alone. There were many others who felt the same way."
"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear."
