Lou Andreas-salom

Famous quotes containing the word lou:

    It is only when we speak what is right that we stand a chance at night of being blown to bits in our homes. Can we call this a free country, when I am afraid to go to sleep in my own home in Mississippi?... I might not live two hours after I get back home, but I want to be a part of setting the Negro free in Mississippi.
    —Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977)
