Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Alliance (IDEA) Team

… we must make every effort [to ensure] that the past injustice, violence and economic discrimination will be made known to the people: The taboo, “let’s not talk about it” must be broken.” 

Albert Einstein – Message to the National Urban League Convention  Sept. 16, 1946 via Einstein on Race and Racism By Fred Jerome and Rodger Taylor
