Quote from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

"It is precisely because education is the road to equality and
citizenship, that it has been made more elusive for Negroes
than many other rights. The walling off of Negroes from equal
education is part of the historical design to submerge him in
second class status. Therefore, as Negroes have struggled to be free
they have had to fight for the opportunity for a decent education."
