Address at the University College of Buffalo Commencement, Buffalo, New York

Around the world— from the straits of Magellan to the straits of Malacca, from the Nile Delta to the Amazon basin, in Jaipur and Johannesburg— the dispossessed people of the world are demanding a place in the sun and we all must share. For uncounted centuries, they have lived with hardship, with hunger and disease and fear. For the last four centuries, they have lived under the political, economic and military domination of the West. We have shown them that a better life is possible. We have not done enough to make it a reality.
