”The state is currently spending five times more for the education for a white child than it is fitting to educate a colored child. That means better textbooks for that child than for that child. I say that’s a shame, but my opponent says today is not the day for whites and coloreds to go to the same college. To share the same campus. To walk into the same classroom. Well, would you kindly tell me when that day is gonna come? Is it going to come tomorrow? Is it going to come next week? In a hundred years? Never? No, the time for justice, the time for freedom, and the time for equality is always, is always right now!”
The conviction in her voice still gives me chills. Jurnee is such a phenomenal actress. It’s sad we don’t get to see more of her gift…
Jurnee is easily one of the greatest actresses in the industry.She is brilliant and the message is still relevant
