"The urge for freedom will eventually come. This is what happened to the American Negro. Something within him has reminded him of his birthright of freedom; something without has reminded him that he can gain it… So let him march sometimes; let him have his prayer pilgrimages to the city hall; understand why he must have sit-ins and freedom, rides. If his repressed emotions do not come out in these nonviolent ways, they will come out in ominous expressions of violence. This is not a threat; it is a fact of history."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and an except from Letter from the Birmingham Jail
