Stevenson: I represent broken people. And I am broken. The broken can teach us how compassion works, and have the power to show us what we need to learn. Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.

Stevenson: We cannot create the cultural landscape we want unless we do uncomfortable & inconvenient things. That’s hard. Humans like comfort. But change only happens when good people and institutions make the uncomfortable and inconvenient choices.

Stevenson: the way we talk about the Civil Righths Movement isn’t honest. It was a decades-long struggle that did not end in the 1960s. The narrative of racial difference persisted, even to today.

Stevenson: thousands of black men were lynched between Reconstruction and 1950. But most Americans cannot name a single African American that was lynched.
