Another Quote for Day: Ordinary Citizens Creating "Contagious Courage Out in the Country" Which Finally Reaches the Nation's Highest Court

Another quote for the day: Ruth Conniff at Common Dreams writing about the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Topeka Board of Education:

In the end, ordinary citizens created "a contagious courage out in the country which penetrated the solemn portals of the nation’s highest court," The Progressive wrote.

All it takes is one ordinary citizen after another putting foot after foot — walking together — in the path of justice and equality. Foot, foot, foot . . . .
