“I believe we’re all more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. We are a slave state, but we’re more than slavers. We are a lynching state, but we’re more than lynchers. We’re a segregation state, but that’s not all we are. The other things we are create an opportunity to do some things that are restorative, rehabilitative, that are redemptive, that create possibilities of reconciliation and repair.”
- Bryan Stevenson
