Albert Einstein (3/14/1879 - 4/18/1955) was an outspoken opponent of racism and lifelong friend of Paul Robeson. In a 1946 speech at Lincoln University he said, "Your ancestors dragged these black people from their homes by force; and in the white man's quest for wealth and an easy life they have been ruthlessly suppressed and exploited, degraded into slavery. The modern prejudice against Negroes is the result of the desire to maintain this unworthy condition." #TodayInBlackHistory
