Famous quotes containing the words electronics and/or hughes:
“We live in a highly industrialized society and every member of the Black nation must be as academically and technologically developed as possible. To wage a revolution, we need competent teachers, doctors, nurses, electronics experts, chemists, biologists, physicists, political scientists, and so on and so forth. Black women sitting at home reading bedtime stories to their children are just not going to make it.”
—Frances Beale, African American feminist and civil rights activist. The Black Woman, ch. 14 (1970)
“Stilled legendary depth:
It was as deep as England: it held
Pike too immense to stir, so immense and old
That past nightfall I dared not cast”
—Ted Hughes (b. 1930)
