1. The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don't have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons – and I know what it's like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson – we raise children and send them to war.

2. Anti war activist, whose statements caused first lady Ladybird Johnson to burst into tears.

11.3.1.1. "The film industry has lied to themselves long enough that they actually believe that their inclusion of fairer skinned black women in TV and film qualifies as broad diversity. I mean look at the first black women to enter mainstream film- Dorothy Dandridge, Fredi Washington, Josephine Baker, Lena Horne, Eartha Kitt. All beautiful, talented, mesmerizing lighter skin black women. It was as if Hollywood was saying at that time, “Okay, we’ll start including the black girls, but only the ones who look the most white.'"

11.4. Eartha stated that she was often made fun of because of her light skin while growing up in the South
