Quotes

Vivian: Will, why did you want to take a class in black history?
Will: Because I'm interested in it.
Vivian: Are you really?
Will: Hey, I read the autobiography of Malcolm X like three times.
Vivian: And that makes you interested?
Will: That's a very important book.
Vivian: Will, you can read the book, you can wear the shirt, you can even shout out the slogans, but unless you know ALL the history behind it, you're trivializing the entire struggle. Now you started something very good. Now it's up to you to finish it.
