Winnie Mandela, South African freedom fighter

"I'm very interested in, 'What does it mean for us to cultivate together?' Community that allows for risk, the risk of knowing someone outside your own boundaries, the risk that is love. There is no love that does not involve risk."
bell hooks, African American feminist scholar

"Our youth, our drive, our diversity and openness, our boundless capacity for risk and reinvention means that the future should be ours. But that potential will only be realized if our democracy works. Only if our politics better reflects the decency of our people."
Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States and the first American Black president
