Birthday Shout Out!

Eleanore Holmes Norton
Congresswoman
June 13, 1937-
Washington, D.C.

"I have not been animated in my life to fight against race and sex discrimination simply because of my own identity. That would mean that one must be South African to fight apartheid, or a poor white in Appalachia to fight poverty, or Jewish to fight anti-Semitism. And I just reject that conception of how struggles should be waged."
