Decision 2012: America’s Historic Quest for Freedom, Justice, Equality and Equity

Will this be an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter who you love, you can pursue your own happiness and you can make it here in America if you try?
- President Barack Obama
44th U.S. President

(Reconstruction III era)

When I ran away from slavery, it was for myself; when I advocated emancipation, it was for my people; but when I stood up for the rights of women, self was out of the question, and I found a little nobility in the act.
- Frederick Douglass
(Civil War-Reconstruction I era)

I repose in this quiet and secluded spot, not from any natural preference for solitude, but finding other cemeteries limited as to race, by charter rules, I have chosen this that I might illustrate in my death the principles which I advocated through a long life, equality of man before his Creator.
- Thaddeus Stevens
(Civil War-Reconstruction I era)

All my life I’ve been sick and tired. Now I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.
- Fannie Lou Hamer
(American Civil Rights era)

Hands that once picked cotton can now pick presidents.
- Jesse Jackson
(Reconstruction II era)

I don’t measure America by its achievement, but by its potential.
- Shirley Chisholm
(Reconstruction II era)

Until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
(American Civil Rights era)
