A Quote for Kamala

 "And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition ere long." From "The Progress of Colored Women," an address given by Mary Church Terrell in 1898 to the National Association of Colored Women on its fiftieth anniversary. 

I am in awe of Mary Church Terrell. She was brilliant and determined and worked for women's rights and social justice throughout her long (1863–1954) life.  Biography: Unceasing Militant: The Life of Mary Church Terrell by Alison M. Parker.
