Al Sharpton will be marching on Washington today against the Police across the nation. But you won’t hear him speak on taking personal responsibility for own decisions. This Martin Luther King Jr passage is never quoted by Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. That’s why it’s on us to share it!
“I come here tonight and plead with you. Believe in yourself and believe that you’re somebody. As I said to a group last night, nobody else can do this for us! No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian Emancipation Proclamation can do this for us. No Kennesonian or Johnsonian Civil Rights Bill can do this for us. If the Negro is to be free, he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign with a pen and ink of self-assertive manhood, his own Emancipation Proclamation. Don’t let anybody take your manhood.”
