However, our Black business and educational institutions will someday be completely vindicated and free, for somewhere I read that "the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof." Thus, as our great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., once remarked: " We shall overcome, we shall overcome because while the arch of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. We shall overcome because Carlye is right, no lie can live forever. We shall overcome William Cullen Bryant is right, truth crushed to earth will rise again. We shall overcome because James Russell Lowell is right, truth forever on the scalpel, wrong forever on the throne, yet that scalpel sways the future. And so with this faith, we will be able to hue out of a mountain of despair, a stone of hope, with this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our Nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. Yes, we will be able to speed up the day, when all of God's children, Black men and White men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, all over this nation will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, we are free at last."
