Quotation of the day

From Benjamin Banneker
I am of the African race, and in the colour which is natural to them of the deepest dye; and it is under a sense of the most profound gratitude to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe.
Quoted in G W Williams, History of the Negro Race in America from 1619 to 1880 (1882)
