We are scholars, because you were passionate about equality in education.
We are lawyers, entrepreneurs, doctors, writers, scientists and more, because you were about the advancement of women.

We are First Lady and one day POTUS, because you marched on Washington and met with presidents to demand change.
We have civil rights, because you were a leader of the movement.
We are praying for your family, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the NCNW, because you were their gem, their sister, their leader.
We are not going to stop striving for justice, because you were a woman who didn't know the word "surrender."
