Speech By Cory Booker; American Constitution Society

Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s inspiring speech for ACS, calling for Americans to take positive action for ourselves and our communities. An excerpt:

“[M]y parents made it clear to my brother and me every single day – you did not get here on your own. ‘All the privilege that you have, young man, was paid for by someone else, you drink deeply from wells of freedom and liberty that you did not dig. You eat lavishly from banquet tables that were prepared for you by your ancestors. You have an obligation; you have a burden – a righteous, glorious burden, because this nation is not finished. We have so much work to do.'”
