Rosa Parks quote: People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. The only tired I was, was tired of giving in. Link to her biography on Black History: http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/rosa-parks
In the pantheon of heroes painted on the walls of South Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago and New York, Malcolm X is a stern, somewhat ghostly presence.

Fletcher I had SUCH a great time on your show! Listen to Fletcher Long and I discuss civil rights marijuana and requirements for judges to sit on the bench!
