Item description:

“Radiate Equality” James Farmer (January 12, 1920 – July 9, 1999) was an American civil rights activist and leader in the Civil Rights Movement "who pushed for nonviolent protest to dismantle segregation.” He was the driving force behind the first Freedom Ride in 1961, which eventually led to the desegregation of interstate transportation in the United States. This pendant is a Tribute to a James Farmer quote from his autobiography “Lay Bare the Heart” “Like a seed, a real core, it would germinate and radiate its equality in wider and wider circles until it encompassed the whole nation.” Sterling/fine silver, 24k gold and natural UV reactive petroleum included quartz crystal donated by @crystalworksgallery. Comes on 18 inch sterling silver chain.
