Color or religion or place of birth

“To deny a man (or woman) his (or her) hopes because of his (or her) color or race, his (or her) religion or place of his (or her) birth is not only to do injustice, it is to deny America and to dishonor the dead who gave their lives for America’s freedom,” Lyndon Baines Johnson said in 1965—the year after the Voting Act of 1964 was passed.

I found this quote recently when I visited the LBJ Library in Austin.
–Joy
