• Therefore we pledge to bind
    ourselves to one another, to embrace
    our lowliest, to keep company with
    our loneliest, to educate our illiterate,
    to feed our starving, to clothe our
    ragged, to do all good things,
    knowing that we are more than
    keepers of our brothers and sisters.
    We are our brothers and sisters

    Maya Angelou, “The Black Family Pledge”
