ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Man] The vote is the most powerful tool

we have in a democracy.

- [Woman] Here is somebody who walked into fire hoses

and cattle prods and remained absolutely nonviolent.

- I will not be satisfied until we end discrimination.

Where is out moral leadership.

Let us vote, we came here to do our job.

You must find a way to get in the way

and make our country a better place.

(upbeat music)
