"53 years ago today, the Voting Rights Act was signed into law by President Johnson. I shed a little blood on that bridge in Selma; I was beaten, left bloody & unconscious while friends of mine gave their lives to ensure that no person would be denied their right to register & vote. Now do your part—get registered, and vote."
"The right to vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool or instrument we have in a democratic society. We must use it. There is no sound more powerful than the marching feet of a determined people. The time is always right to do right. Find a way to get in the way and we will make a way out of no way"
