What you are sayin' is that our colored children, my little Shirley Barbara and the rest ain't good enough to go to that nice school with the roses? They don't deserve it? Good Lord made them of cheaper cloth or something'? Isn't that what we are sayin' when we quiet about this? I ain't gonna say it no more. God did not make the Negro child out of a cheaper cloth. I will not say it.
Mrs. Sarah Bulah — Scene 9
