“To those who have said ‘Be patient and wait,’ we must say that we cannot be patient. We do not want our freedom gradually, but we want to be free now. The time will come when we will not confine our marching to Washington.

Wake up!’ For we cannot stop and we will not and cannot be patient.” @repjohnlewis — during his March on Washington speech in 1963.
