Michael Jackson

“There are two things that the NAACP stands for which are the most important things in my life; freedom and equality. In every person there is a secret song in their heart it says “I am free” it sings “I am one” this is the natural feeling of every child to be free as the wind, to be one with every other child. All the troubles in the world are caused by forgetting this feeling and when I perform my connection it’s with people and it’s just to remind me of that — to be free and to be one.” – Michael Jackson upon receiving the NAACP Image Award in 1993. #BlackHistoryMonth
