Oneness in Action

“Football is oneness in action. When played well, it is unity on display.
Players come from different races and different backgrounds.
However, when they get on the field,
they harmonize their differences toward a common goal.”

On the Wings of Our Conscience

“We were carried to Selma … years ago on the wings of our Jewish conscience,
which insisted that it is our moral duty as Jews and as American citizens
to say no to the insidious and tenacious racism of this country

An Opera in the Cotton Fields

“I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young.
There were a lot of African Americans working out there.
A lot of Mexicans
– the blacks and the whites and the Mexicans,
all out there singing,
and it was like an opera in the cotton fields,
and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today.”
