• There is no Constitutional issue here. The command of the Constitution is plain. There is no moral issue. It is wrong - deadly wrong - to deny any of your fellow Americans the right to vote in this country. There is no issue of States' rights or National rights. There is only the struggle for human rights.

    Address to a Joint Session of Congress on Voting Legislation, delivered 15 March 1965, Washington, D.C.
