…Until Justice Rolls Down

If [we] fail to act . . . history will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Our generation will have to repent not only for the acts and words of the children of darkness but also for the fears and apathy of the children of light.

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” April 16, 1963
