"Our ancestors unearthed themselves on Wall Street and told us who they were."

On whites taking children to view lychings:

"What happens when you do such things is you lose your humanity…. Do you see? The dehumanization works both ways."

 

"After a while if you tell me enough times that I’m not human then I begin to believe it."

 

"You’re not the descendant of slaves. You’re the descendant of captured free people."

 

Respect means ‘to look again’.
