“Movements are not radical. Movements are the American way. A small group of abolitionists writing and speaking eventually led to the end of slavery. A few stirred-up women brought about women’s voting. The Populist movement, the Progressive movement, the anti-Vietnam War movement, the women’s movement – the examples go on and on of ‘little people’ getting together and telling the truth about their lives. They made our government act.” –Unita Blackwell (b. March 18, 1933): Civil Rights Activist and 1st female African-American mayor in Mississippi.
