“Those who deplore our militants, who exhort patience in the name of a false peace, are in fact supporting segregation and exploitation. They would have social peace at the expense of social and racial justice. They are more concerned with easing racial tension than enforcing racial democracy.”

A. Philip Randolph, from his speech at the 1963 “March on Washington”

“I’m on a campaign to make you mine/I’ll picket you until you sign/In one big union for two/No courts and junction can make me stop/Until your love is all closed shop/In one big union for two/Seven days a week I want the right/To call you mine both day and night/The hours may be long/But fifty million union members can’t be wrong”

From the song “One Big Union For Two” in the Broadway musical “Pins & Needles”

“Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell, full of that yankee doodle de dum; Half a million boots went slogging through Hell and I was the kid with the drum/Say don’t you remember, they called me Al, it was Al all the time/Say don’t you remember, I’m your pal, brother can you spare a dime?”

From the song  “Brother Can You Spare a Dime?” written by E. Y. “Yip” Harburg and Jay Gorney.
