Random quote of the day:

“The Negro has been here in America since 1619….He is not going anywhere else; this country is his home…Let me appeal to the consciences of many silent, responsible citizens of the white community who know that a victory for democracy in Jackson will be a victory for democracy everywhere.”

—Medgar Evers, speech, WLBT radio, Jackson Mississippi, May 20, 1963
(Less than a month later, Medgar Evers was gunned down in his driveway by a white supremacist in front of his wife and children.)
