Address at the Third Annual WGHQ Human Relations Award Dinner, Ellenville, New York

April 19, 1966


Ellenville, NY

We have a responsibility to ourselves, to the next generation to consider the future. We have a responsibility to devote adequate resources and imagination to bringing the poorest fifth of our people into a position of greater participation in the wealth and politics of our country. And we must realize that, unless we do this, the great and recurring question for the future will not be whether Watts will recur, but how many more times we will have to learn the lesson of Watts.
