Annual Book Award

“I wish I could say that racism and prejudice were only distant memories. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust…We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.”

— Thurgood Marshall, Lawyer & Associate Supreme Court Justice (1908-1993)
