|"Nannie Burroughs understood that the children of today are parents, teachers, police women and men, and leaders in the community and country of tomorrow. I believe that we, as adults, are all at an intersection, with different ideas and views, trying to get to the same. That place is, as Burroughs often wrote is, "An Improved America" for our children. The time is now for us to Recognize the Opportunity, accept the Responsibility, and Seize the Challenge to come together and discuss openly, honestly and respectfully our differences. Nannie Helen Burroughs demands nothing less of us".
- Colonel (Ret.) James E. Wyatt, Founder, The Nannie Helen Burroughs Project
