“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” – Malcolm X
Education has been a driving force in many social revolutions—from the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s to the women’s movement of the 1970s.
The more education people receive, the more they question the social and political systems that keep them oppressed, the more they seek knowledge that can help them replace oppression with justice and freedom.
