"The nation is sick; trouble is in the land, confusion all around...
But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see
the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth
century. Something is happening in our world. The masses of people are
rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in
Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City;
Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee, the cry
is always the same: 'We want to be free.'"
by:
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(1929-1968), US civil rights leader
