From daughter Robyn, May 30, 2020

“And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? … It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.”

― Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“The Other America”  speech, Grosse Pointe High School, March 14, 1968
