    Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.

    —Frederick Douglass (c.1817–1895)

    Fit gravefellows you are for Lincoln, Brown
    And Douglass and Toussaint. . . all whose rapt eyes
    Fashioned a new world in this wilderness.
    American earth is richer for your bones;
    Our hearts beat prouder for the blood we inherit.
    Dudley Randall (b. 1914)
