The tradition I carry on is the recognition of the women of Georgia of all hues. Presented roll call of the women on whose shoulders we stand.
Quote: I would like to do this as a short roll call and a big Thank You to some of these women:
Fannie Lou Hammer. Phyllis Wheatley Ida B. Wells Shirley Chisholm Mary Church Terrell Inez Millhound Lucy Craft Laney Susan B. Anthony. who was pardoned by the president today I close with this thought As we are here for but a moment in history, may what we did here today be the next tier of shoulders on which future generations stand. Thank you!
