Mayor Warren Evokes The Words of Dr. King During Inaugural Address

Challenger Community News

January 10th 2018 Edition:

On New Year’s Day Mayor Lovey A. Warren pledged to dedicate her second term to bringing economic equality to Rochester as envisioned by such leaders as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rochester’s own Joseph C. Wilson, the founder of the Xerox Corp. “With God’s grace and His mercy, we will pick up where Dr. King and Mr. Wilson left off and try to bring true economic equality to Rochester,” Mayor Warren said. “Together we will work to create in Rochester a living example of the powerful, but unfinished, legacy of these great men.”

 

Mayor Warren was sworn in during a ceremony at Kilbourn Hall at the Eastman School of Music to begin her second term as mayor. In her inauguration speech, Mayor Warren borrowed a refrain from one of Dr.

King’s final addresses and implored the audience “Let us be dissatisfied together.” She noted that at the end of his life, Dr. King was beginning to take on the challenge of economic inequality. Meanwhile, she said, Joseph Wilson, the founder of Xerox and the namesake of her high school, was taking a deep interest in the civil unrest that had prompted race riots in Rochester and other cities. “Dr. King started to articulate that civil rights alone do not guarantee freedom,” Mayor Warren said. “He said: For we know now that it isn’t enough to integrate lunch counters.

What does it profit a man to be able to eat at an integrated lunch counter if he doesn’t have enough money to buy a hamburger and a cup of coffee?’ ” Mr. Wilson responded to the race riots by meeting with members of Rochester’s African American community, including the Rev. Franklin Florence Sr. and members of the FIGHT organization, to learn more about conditions of their lives. Soon after, his company launched an aggressive effort to hire more minority workers and managers, and went on to become the first Fortune 500 Company to appoint a Black woman as its Chief Executive Officer and President.

 

She also noted that the legacy of Mr. Wilson traced to her election, as her father was a Xerox employee. “And I hope Dr. King and Mr. Wilson would be proud to know that line will not end with me,” she said. “It will continue right on through my office to future generations.”
