American Academic, Historian & Ethnographer--Ronald Takaki
Our expanding ethnic diversity of this century, a time when we will all be minorities, offers us an invitation to create a larger memory of who we are as Americans and to re-affirm our founding principle of equality. Let's put aside fears of the "disuniting of America" and warnings of the"clash of civilizations." As Langston Hughes sang, "Let America be America, where equality is in the air we breathe."
