"Freedom is not enough. You do not wipe away the scars of centuries by saying: Now you are free to go where you want, and do as you desire, and choose the leaders you please...Thus it is not enough just to open the gates of opportunity. All of our citizens must have the ability to walk through these gates.
This is the next step and more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just legal equity but human ability, not just equality but human ability, not just equality as a right and a theory but equality as a fact and equality as a result."
36th U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson
June 4, 1965 - Howard University
