"We declare our right on this earth… to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary…"
"America has a very serious problem. Not only does America have a very serious problem, but our people have a very serious problem. America's problem is us. We're her problem. The only reason she has a problem is she doesn't want us here…"
"Our problem is your problem. It is not a [Black] problem, nor an American problem...This is a world problem, a problem for humanity. It is not a problem of civil rights. It is a problem of human rights!" Ancestor Malcom X addressed human rights violations at the OAU (Organization of African Unity).
We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are restored. "
From: Sojourner Truth
"Children, I talks to God and God talks to me. I goes out and talks to God in de fields and in de woods. This morning, I was walking out and I got over de fence. I saw the wheat hold up its head looking very bare and looking very dead. I goes up and takes ahold of it. Can you believe it? There wasn't any wheat 'dere! 
Din I says, "God, What ails dis wheat?" And he says to me, "Sojourner, There's a little weevil* in it." Now, I heard talk about dis Constitution and the rights of man. I comes up and takes a hold of this Constitution. It looks mighty big. And I feels for my rights but, there ain't any dere. Then I says, "God! What ails dis Constitution?" He says to me, "Sojourner, There's a little weevil* in it." Ancestor Sojourner Truth 1797-1883
