Yes, we are on the move and no wave of racism can stop us.

We are on the move now. The burning of our churches will not deter us.  The bombing of our homes will not dissuade us.  We are on the move now.  The beating and killing of our clergymen and young people will not divert us. We are on the move now.  The wanton release of their known murderers would not discourage us. We are on the move now. Like an idea whose time has come, not even the marching of mighty armies can halt us. We are moving to the land of freedom.

Let us therefore continue our triumphant march to the realization of the American dream.
