Quote mark

“We have tolerance, respect, and equality in our written laws but not in the hearts of some of our people. It's not who you're going to sit beside at school that matters now: it's what resources will your school have. My mother had taught me that the only thing you could depend on was your faith, and I had that.”

—Ruby Bridges
