“I’m neither Democrat nor Republican. I’m Methodist. I have grievances with both parties.” Joseph Lowery

‘I’d like a hamburger and a coke, please.’
‘Sir, we don’t serve negroes here.’
‘Ma’am, I don’t eat negroes. I’d like a hamburger and a coke.’ Joseph Lowery

A lifetime of gratitude for Joseph Lowery. He sacrificed so that equality would be more than a platitude.
