Constance Baker Motley
“Something which we think is impossible now is not impossible in another decade.”
“A Negro who does not vote is ungrateful to those who have already died in the fight for freedom. ... Any person who does not vote is failing to serve the cause of freedom — his own freedom, his people's freedom, and his country's freedom.”
Constance Baker Motley, U.S. civil rights activist, lawyer, judge, state senator, Borough President of Manhattan
(1921 - 2005)
