Famous quotes containing the word delany:

    [My mother told me:] “You must decide whether you want to get married someday, or have a career.”... I set my sights on the career. I thought, what does any man really have to offer me?
    —Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)

    I am a colored woman or a Negro woman. Either one is OK. People dislike those words now. Today these use this term African American. It wouldn’t occur to me to use that. I prefer to think of myself as an American, that’s all!
    —Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)

    ...you don’t have to be as good as white people, you have to be better or the best. When Negroes are average, they fail, unless they are very, very lucky. Now, if you’re average and white, honey, you can go far. Just look at Dan Quayle. If that boy was colored he’d be washing dishes somewhere.
    —Annie Elizabeth Delany (b. 1891)
