About this Quote

Barbara Jordan, a popular civil rights leader as well as politician, made this declaration in a speech she supplied at the 1976 Autonomous National Convention. In her speech, Jordan mentions the importance of diversity and also inclusivity in the Democratic Celebration, as well as exactly how this is something that has actually existed considering that the very early days of American migration.

Jordan keeps in mind that a number of the immigrants that pertained to America in the 19th century related to the Democratic Party, and she associates this to the truth that the event has constantly been composed of people from varied backgrounds. According to Jordan, Democrats accept the distinctions that make us one-of-a-kind and also celebrate the truth that most of us originate from various walks of life.

Jordan's statement is considerable since it reminds us of the value of diversity and also inclusivity, both within the Democratic Party and also in our culture in its entirety. It also highlights the fact that the party has a long history of welcoming those that originate from various histories, which is something that we ought to aim to continue today.
