Optimistic, because even though the year of Obama’s birth Herbert Lee, a black farmer with nine children, was shot in the head for trying to register black voters, it was also the year the Freedom Rides rocked the South and established a generation of youth leaders. Optimistic, because even though the year of my birth the Klan bombed four little black girls in a Birmingham church and Medgar Evers and President Kennedy were gunned down, it was also the year that established our road map for today – America’s dispossessed marching on Washington in unprecedented numbers to demand freedom and articulate our dream. ― Faith Adiele, Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times
