Quotes:

“When America catches a cold, African-Americans get phenomena” And right now economically we’re going through a recession…but the disproportionate impact on communities like ours is being felt.”

“If we’re going to run a campaign, this campaign has to heal the whole community”

“If you’re in a position to give, listen to your communities”

“It’s not a time to wait on the system anymore…this is a perfect moment to seize control and disrupt politically a lot of what’s going on in our failing school boards”
