FEATURED LIBERTY HILL UPTON SINCLAIR AWARD DINNER SPEECHES
“The English Queen Mary, who failed to hold the French port of Calais, said that when she died, the word ‘Calais’ would be found written on her heart. I don’t know whether anyone will care to examine my heart, but if they do they will find two words there - ‘Social Justice.’ For that is what I have believed in and fought for during my eighty-four years.”
- Upton Sinclair
