“They did what human beings looking for freedom, throughout history, have often done. They left.”
Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

“Our Negro problem, therefore, is not of the Negro's making. No group in our population is less responsible for its existence. But every group is responsible for its continuance.... Both races need to understand that their rights and duties are mutual and equal and their interests in the common good are idential.... There is no help or healing in apparaising past responsibilities or in present apportioning of praise or blame. The past is of value only as it aids in understanding the present; and an understanding of the facts of the problem--a magnanimous understanding by both races--is the first step toward its solution.”
Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

“That's why I preach today. Do not do spite," he said. "Spite does not pay. It goes around and misses the object that you aim and comes back and zaps you. And you're the one who pays for it.”
