  • We have come together to claim our freedom. The DOI and Constitution were a guarantee of freedom and equality for everyone. We are toldthat it is obvious that today America has ignored this, and that they have declined African Americans the rights that they deserved.

  • We are reminded that this is a time of urgency and that they must rise up from segregation and give opportunities to every human being. Now is time to lift the nation from racial injustice to 1 solid unified nation.

  • In our quest for freedom, we must not do anything that is wrong. We have been told that we will not get our freedom by getting rid of the bitterness and the hatred, but rather we have to handle it with dignity. We are warned that they cannot let what they believe for to become violent and that they must use the force of their soul and their being.

Excerpt 5

Many of the things whites have done have led us to hate them, but there are still many whites who are fighting alongside us. They have realized that they are only free when we are free, and we can’t do this alone. We must promise to move forward and not give up.

Excerpt 6

  • People ask when blacks will be satisfied. We tell them that we won’t be satisfied as long as Negroes are the victims of police violence. We wont be satisfied as long as they cant go in motels and hotels and highways. We can’t be satisfied until Negroes can vote, and we won’t be satisfied until justice is met.

Excerpt 7

  • He has told us his Dream. His dream is that one day America will rise up and live up to what it can be. He hopes that one day, sons of slaves and sons of slave owners can get along and set aside their differences. He dreams that one day, people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by their character. He hopes that everyone will be able and equal.
