A billion years from now, circling some indigo star, perhaps speaking a language unrecognizable to us, a human child will be taunting another child or adult to the tune of 'nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah; you-can't-get-me.' I swear that thing never dies.

Thoreau's statement, "When I hear music, I feel invincible," applies to the oratory of Martin Luther King Jr. When people heard the rhythms and music of King's preaching, the movement, and its goals, felt inevitable. Also applies to the power created in the Civil Rights Movement through song and collective singing, generating together the will to face repression in the struggle for community and justice.

Love, and the passion for justice that comes from love, have EVERYTHING to do with true, objective scholarship. We cannot see what we do not love.

As scholars, our task is neither to honor nor disparage, but to evaluate... with a clear-eyed, heart-filled commitment to truth and justice that can burn a hole through rock.

this entire life is a momentary plunge. a sacred baptism. death is like coming up for air.

We need stories that can reconcile us to our history. Stories that show how the past lives in the present are necessary for freeing the future.
