We humans are one species and this is our world — Carl Sagan, 1934 – 1996
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. — Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
In 1946, Albert Einstein spoke at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the first university in the United States to grant college degrees to blacks. In his remarks, he offered this powerful observation:
"There is a separation of colored people from white people in the United States. That separation is not a disease of colored people. It is a disease of white people. I do not intend to be quiet about it."
