Labor and Civil Rights Legend
A community is democratic only when the humblest and weakest person can enjoy the highest civil, economic, and social rights that the biggest and most powerful possess. ~ A. Philip Randolph
Salvation for a race, nation or class must come from within. Freedom is never granted; it is won. Justice is never given; it is exacted. ~ A. Philip Randolph
