Famous quotes containing the words africans and/or enslaved:

    Where do whites fit in the New Africa? Nowhere, I’m inclined to say ... and I do believe that it is true that even the gentlest and most westernised Africans would like the emotional idea of the continent entirely without the complication of the presence of the white man for a generation or two. But nowhere, as an answer for us whites, is in the same category as remarks like What’s the use of living? in the face of the threat of atomic radiation. We are living; we are in Africa.
    Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)

    Trust me that as I ignore all law to help the slave, so will I ignore it all to protect an enslaved woman.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
