Famous quotes containing the words black and/or hair:

    ... white people, like black ones, are victims of a racist society. They are products of their time and place.
    Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)

    A bracelet of bright hair about the bone,
    Will he not let us alone,
    And think that there a loving couple lies
    Who thought that this device might be some way
    To make their souls, at the last busy day,
    Meet at this grave, and make a little stay?
    John Donne (1572–1631)
