I was raised by a single mother who made a way for me. She used to scrub floors as a domestic worker, put a cleaning rag in her pocketbook and ride the subways in Brooklyn so I would have food on the table. But she taught me as I walked her to the subway that life is about not where you start, but where you're going. That's family values.Al Sharpton
The dream was not to put one black family in the White House, the dream was to make everything equal in everybody's house.Al Sharpton
