Something to Inspire You...
The Negro's place is at the side of the white citizen who believes in democracy, fair play, equality of opportunity and a better way of life. Those who oppose this doctrine have no place in America and should be firmly dealt with before they put this country in a condition of anarchy.L.C. Bates, Temple of Dreams
This is a part of the American story. We need to know about these communities, we need to understand that these communities were complex. That people were educated, had money, owned businesses, and established and maintained important institutions in these communities. These are stories that people aren't getting."Dr. Chensse Hones-Branch, Dream Land
