The lack of sensitivity to recognize personhood in others
must be one of the most glaring of human failings.
The results of this failure are shameful.
Rev. Dr. Samuel DeWitt Proctor
Recently, the Rev. Dr. Raphael G. Warnock, pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA shared a poignant story about his father and the dignity of work. This Labor Day, Samuel DeWitt Proctor Conference, Inc. shares this story with you and asks that you remember to thank a worker today. Honor and appreciate their humanity and the dignity of their labors.
To those in every facet of the workforce, we salute you and your efforts!
God bless those who labor, and especially those who labor for justice.
A luta continua,
