If you will protest courageously, and yet with dignity and Christian love, when the history books are written in future generations, the historians will have to pause and say, "There lived a great people—a black people—who injected new meaning and dignity into the veins of civilization."

—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ( Address at Montgomery AL, 31 Dec. 1955)
