Unita Blackwell Quotes

Movements are not radical. Movements are the American way. A small group of abolitionists writing and speaking eventually led to the end of slavery. A few stirred-up women brought about womens voting. The Populist movement, the Progressive movement, the anti-Vietnam War movement, the womens movement - the examples go on and on of little people getting together and telling the truth about their lives. They made our government act.

Change depends on people knowing the truth. Change depends on people speaking that truth out loud. That's what movements do. Movements educate people to the truth. They pass along information and ideas that many others do not know, and they cause them to ask questions, to challenge their own long-held beliefs ... Movements are the way ordinary people get more freedom and justice. Movements are how we keep a check on power and those who abuse it.
