Ralph Bunche – To the boulevards!

February 28, 2015

“The real objective… of schemes of future international organization must always be the good life for all of the people. International machinery will mean something to the common man in the Orient, as indeed to the common man throughout the world, only when it is translated into terms that he can understand: peace, bread, housing, clothing, education, good health, and above all, the right to walk with dignity on the world’s great boulevards.”

(from a speech in December 1942; cited in Brian Urquhart, Ralph Bunche: An American Life)
