Segregation Quotations

Segregation is that which is forced upon an inferior by a superior. Separation is done voluntarily by two equals.
Malcolm X

The civil rights movement was based on faith. Many of us who were participants in this movement saw our involvement as an extension of our faith. We saw ourselves doing the work of the Almighty. Segregation and racial discrimination were not in keeping with our faith, so we had to do something.
John Lewis

The legal battle against segregation is won, but the community battle goes on.
Dorothy Day

I grew up in the South under segregation. So, I know what terrorism feels like - when your father could be taken out in the middle of the night and lynched just because he didn't look like he was in an obeying frame of mind when a white person said something he must do. I mean, that's terrorism, too.
Alice Walker

Segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever!
