“So we must speak, even as we fight and die. We must say that the fight against Hitlerism begins in Washington, D.C., the capital of our nation, where black Americans have a status only slightly above that of Jews of Berlin. […] If the ghettos in Poland are evil, so are the ghettos in America.“

Editorial, “Now Is the Time,” The Crisis, January 1942, 7.
