Understanding Equality

Former Governor Harold Hughes (1922-1996) talks about understanding equality.


When it finally dawned on me, sitting in that governor’s office and looking out that window in 1963, that the people living in the southeast Bottoms had every right I had sitting in that governor’s chair. I was sad. Because I hadn’t realized that before. And no person should ever be elected to sit in that office that doesn’t understand that.
