Rev. Joseph Lowrey’s Benediction

‘Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labour’s rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man — and when white will embrace what is right.’
