In a speech that shook the walls of the the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Rev. Dr. William Barber II, the President of the North Carolina NAACP, delivered one of the most riveting addresses of the Democratic National Convention.
“I don’t come tonight representing any organization. But I’ve come to talk about faith and morality,” Barber began.
“I know it may sound strange, but I’m a conservative because I work to conserve a divine tradition that teaches us to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God,” he added.
“We are being called, like our mothers and fathers, to be the moral defibrillators of our time. We will shock this nation and fight for justice for all. We will not give up on the heart of our democracy, not now, not ever,” he continued.
