Posted by Kendall Harmon

Life in America is changing. School is becoming freer, community is replacing isolation, marriage is becoming less of an enslavement, openness is taking over from superficiality, black is becoming beautiful. But the changes aren't happening fast enough, nor for enough people, and there are always those who would block them and even turn back the clock if they could.

--John Robben, "On the Need for Prophets in Our Own Time," New York Times, July 5, 1972
