Don’t you see; can’t you see, that segregation denies a man or woman something more important than “justice’ or ‘opportunty, ‘ and that is self respect, freedom from being made to feel subtly inferior, from being, after all, and finally an outcast….I can only tell you that when long soul- searching and a combination of circumstances delivered me of my last prejudices, there was an exulted sense of liberation. It was not the Negro who became free, but I. I wish and pray for your own liberation. It is almost a religious experience. No man is free as long as another is enslaved, and the slavery of the spirit is more stringent than that of the body.
