Saying, “We will choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege,” Joe Biden accepts the nomination for President of the United States

TRANSCRIPT: Good evening. Ella Baker, a giant of the civil rights movement, left us with this wisdom: Give people light and they will find a way. Give people light. Those are words for our time.
