“I don’t know what will happen now.
We have got difficult days ahead, but it doesn’t matter with me because I’ve been to the mountain top. Like anybody else I would like to live a long life. But I’m not concerned with that. I just want to do God’s will and he has allowed me to go up to the mountain. I see the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land. I am happy tonight that I am not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” (Ben Shahn print version) (link to youtube of longer section)
