Twenty million black people don’t even know their own name. Why? Because he took it away from you. Twenty million black people don’t even know their own language. Why? Because he took it away from you. Twenty million black people don’t even know the history of their ancestors. Why? Because he took it away from you. And if you try and tell them how thoroughly and completely you’ve been robbed, he says you’re teaching hate. That’s something to think about. Today, you’re coming out of college, you’re coming out of the leading universities, you’re trying to go in a good direction but you don’t know which direction to go in, and if somebody tries to take you right to the root of your problem, they say that that man’s a hate teacher. And then again if we tell you that Negroes are being hung on the trees, or being shot down illegally, unjustly and those Negroes should do something to protect themselves, you say, “You’re advocating violence.” The white man is tricking you. He’s trapping you. He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in South Vietnam. He doesn’t call it violence when he lands troops in Berlin. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, he didn’t say get nonviolent. He said, praise the Lord but pass the ammunition. But when someone attacks you, when someone comes at you with a club, when someone comes at you with a rope, when someone comes at you with a gun, despite the fact that you’ve done nothing, he tells you, suffer peacefully. Pray for those who use you despite-fully. Be long-suffering. And how long can you suffer after suffering for four hundred years?

Conservators recently restored “Diana,” the best-known work of the most celebrated sculptor of the Gilded Age, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. After an extensive study of the artist’s methods and several phases of technical preparation, they made much-needed structural repairs to the sculpture and applied 180 square feet of gold leaf to restore its original shine. To see how much work went into the process, check out here.Conservators Andrew Lins, Alisa Vignalo, and Adam Jenkins apply gold leaf to “Diana” in the Great Stair Hall.
