Black Leaders Commemorate Brown v. Board of Education at 60
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California)
"On this important anniversary, let us remember the words of Justice Thurgood Marshall, who argued this case as a NAACP chief counsel, 'None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody... bent down and helped us pick up our boots.' Today, let us never forget the message of Brown as we work to ensure equal access to education, a strong workforce and an open door to opportunity for all," said Rep. Maxine Waters.
