Dr. King
“...The richest nation on Earth has never allocated enough resources to build sufficient schools, to compensate adequately its teachers, and to surround them with the prestige our work justifies." -- Valerie Strauss, "MLK's prescient thinking on education reform."

Bill Moyers
In an era of gross inequality there’s both irony and relevance in Woody Guthrie’s song. That “ribbon of highway” he made famous? It’s faded and fraying in disrepair, the nation’s infrastructure of roads and bridges, once one of our glories, now a shambles because fixing them would require spending money, raising taxes and pulling together. -- Moyers & Winship, "Woody Guthrie, more relevant than ever."
Marv Davidov
'60s Freedom Rider
"I want people to remember and tell funny stories about me and the struggle, and try to create a deeper, more profound movement and build the numbers." -- Star-Tribune, "Peace Activist Marv Davidov dies"
