Letter from Birmingham Jail - Martin Luther King Jr.

This quote was added by jacksonm
We know through painful experience that freedom must be demanded by the oppressed. For years now I have heard the word "wait." It rings in the ear of every Negro with a piercing familiarity. This "wait" has almost always meant "never." It has been a tranquilizing thalidomide... The nations of Asia and Africa are moving with jet-like speed toward the goal of political independence, and we still creep at horse-and-buggy pace toward the gaining of a cup of coffee at a lunch counter.
