“his religion revealed to him that God loved all of his children”

The Negro masses all over began to reevaluate themselves, and the Negro came to feel that he was somebody; his religion revealed to him that God loved all of his
children, and that all that are made in his image. And so he came to see and to feel in his own soul that the significant thing about a man is not his specificity but his fundamentals, and not the texture of his hair or the color of his skin, but the texture and quality of his soul. And with this new evaluation, with this
new self respect, the negative peace of the nation and of the south was gradually undermined. — MLK, Justice Without Violence
