"The legal system can force open doors and sometimes even knock down walls. But it cannot build bridges.
That job belongs to you and me. Afro and White, rich and poor, educated and illiterate, our fates are bound together. We can
run from each other but we cannot escape each other. We will only attain freedom if we learn to appreciate what is different
and muster the courage to discover what is fundamentally the same. America's diversity offers so much richness and
opportunity. Take a chance, won't you? Knock down the fences that divide. Tear apart the walls that imprison. Reach
out, freedom lies just on the other side. We should have liberty for all."
Marshall, Former Justice
of the U.S. Supreme Court, July 4, 1992, Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA
