MARTIN, HUBERT, MALCOLM, CORETTA by Mike Alewitz


THEIR LIVES SHALL NO LONGER BE CHEAP


“Let Negroes determine that their lives shall no longer be cheap; but that they will exact for them as high a price as any other element in the community under similar circumstances would exact. Let them see to it that their lives are protected and defended, if not by the State, then certainly by themselves.
Then we will see the cracker stopping to take counsel with himself and think twice before he joins a mob in whose gruesome holiday sport he himself is likely to furnish one of the casualties.”

RIP Hubert Harrison
(April 27, 1883 – December 17, 1927)
