Thank you for taking action. We will be in touch soon!
He [William Patterson, head of the Civil Rights Congress] said, you know you do have a choice. You don’t have to be a part of the world of the lynchers. You can join the other America – the people who struggled against slavery, the people who railed against slavery, the white people who supported them, the people who all through Reconstruction struggled. He came on down through history of the people who have struggled against injustice — the Other America. And you know sometimes people will say just what you need to hear at that point. I was very young. And that’s what I needed to hear. And that’s what I felt like I joined.
