Black History Month quote of the day: Jackie Robinson

"I am convinced that those of us who are earnestly concerned about the problems of civil rights and integration must measure progress not in terms of how much progress we have made recently but how far we have yet to go before we achieve full first class citizenship for the Negro." Jackie Robinson, Letter to Nixon [February 5, 1954]
