What a Wonderful World
poem
I Dream A World
I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom's way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind-
Of such I dream, my world!

-Langston Hughes
Wade in the Water
"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of that old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'"
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
"You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom."
-Malcolm X
From a dark past.....segregated
