"The current sit-in and other demonstrations are concerned with something bigger then a hamburger...The Negro and white students, North and South, are seeking to rid America of the scourge of racism, segregation and discrimination - not at lunch counters but in every aspect of life."


- Ella Baker, of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, 1960

It was pretty cool....very educational. Living here in Topeka, I thought I would go ever since it opened, but never made it, really wished I could have been there when President Bush was there and all, but work got in the way. I finally made it when the post office used the site as one of their stamp commenerative locations for their civil rights stamps.
