"This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal." — Toni Morrison. (🎥 : @theebillyporter)
"Turns out #BayardRustin was silenced by the movement because he was homosexual. Some of the leaders of the movement felt it wasn't appropriate to have what they labeled 'a sexual deviant' in their midst. So, they put him out." — @theebillyporter
"#BayardRustin gave his life
over to the greater good
to the bigger picture
and bowed out gracefully,
leaving his legacy at
the feet of those who
would deny his humanity
so hypocritically.

I ain't so grateful."
