“I never intend to adjust myself to the tragic inequalities of an economic system which takes necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes. I never intend to become adjusted to the madness of militarism and the self-defeating method of physical violence.”

Martin Luther King
Highlander Institute for activists in 1957


“How many protesters does it take to convert a president?
“Only one, but the president has to got to want to change.”
“So no need for mass actions!”
