"Freed adult slaves promised “40 acres and a Mule” by President Lincoln, a good man later killed, then were subsequently informed that this particular promise was somehow “all one big misunderstanding” (you just have to smile at this stuff and shake your head), but we now just need to refocus our energies, and our efforts, on securing “40 books and a bank account” for our children.  We need to move on."

John Hope Bryant from "Silver Rights and the Good Samaritan"
