Happy Birthday, Jackie Captain

Jackie at protest in D.C., 2003
American activist and enemy of injustice.

One of Jackie's favorite quotes:

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy
University of Capetown, South Africa

June 6, 1966
