On Blackness | James Weldon Johnson, Atlanta University, 1894

You are young, gifted, and Black. We must begin to tell our young, There’s a world waiting for you, Yours is the quest that’s just begun.

James Weldon Johnson, Atlanta University 1894, Author, Diplomat & Poet


  1. I agree. This is a great quote, it should all motivate African American. It motivates me because it’s true. Us as young people have to realize that we can be somebody no matter what.
