My Dear friend Rev. James Orange

“Giving folks their God-ordained dignity and respect is incredibly powerful. The boss never does it. The good organizer always does it. My deceased friend Rev. James Orange, one of the closest to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was so great at this. He called everyone ‘leader’ and appealed to the better angels in everyone.”

– An excerpt from Playing Bigger Than You Are: A Life in Organizing by Stewart Acuff
