"Another indication that progress is being made was found in the recent presidential election in the United States. The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path.
"Let me not leave you with a false impression. The problem is far from solved."
--Martin Luther King, Jr., December, 1964, from Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech
