Quotes

William 'Will' Smith: I read the autobiography of Malcolm X.
Vivian Banks: And that makes you a serious Black History student?
William 'Will' Smith: It's a very important book.
Vivian Banks: Will, you can read the books, you can wear the t-shirts, you can put up the posters and you can shout out the slogans. But unless you know all the facts, you are just trivializing the entire struggle.
