Beverly wants to uplift the words of Congressman John R. Lewis and Civil Rights LEader Benjamin Hooks:
“When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something”.
“If anyone thinks that I am going to stop litigating, they had better close the courts”.
