Dreams Deferred: The Movement for Black Lives Today

Delonte Gholston, Jasmine Abdullah, Andre Henry and Jeanelle Austin in the Rector’s Forum on MLK, Jr. Sunday, January 15, 2017:

“Leadership looks different in this movement. We have a lot of decentralized movements and that is a strength of ours, I believe. And so if you’re waiting for a Dr. King or a Malcolm X that you can jump behind, you’re waiting too long. You’re letting the moment pass you. We don’t have Dr. Kings and Malcolm Xs.”

“For Just Such a Time as This”

Delonte Gholston On MLK Jr. Sunday, January 15, 2017:

“Esther was a sister who knew what time it was: not a time for apathy or complacency, but a time to stand.”
