“We unfortunately cannot expect a system designed to create 3/5 of a human legislation, share cropping, Jim Crow laws, separate but equal policies, COINTELPRO, poll taxes and the new Jim Crow laws to be a primary vehicle for freedom, justice and equality. These weren’t made to free you. We should participate in the system yes, but we must supplement it.” – Rev. Derrick Rice, Sankofa United Church of Christ
“At this march, we will walk with our children and make it clear to the world that black children’s lives matter.– Attorney Mawuli Mel Davis, Davis Bozeman Law Firm
