Charles P. Henry, III: Link Correction, Further Reading, and One More Quote

October 14th, 2008 by Ajuan Mance

Last night’s blogpost included a link to an article by Charles P. Henry, III. The link was broken, but now I have fixed it. To read Dr. Henry’s article, you can go back to the original blog entry and click on the link, or you can click from this post: Obama as Reparations by Charles P. Henry, III.

If you enjoyed this article, then you might also be interested in these writings by the same author:

And, finally, one more quote:

Jimmy Carter, former President of the United States, once said that America did not create human rights — rather, human rights created America. Any government might make the same claim whose founders strove to decentralize power and increase the control people had over their lives. Certainly, it is easy for the citizens of “superpowers” like the Soviet Union and the United States to believe human rights began with then. Therefore, it is even more important for citizens in those nations to know and understand the universal and inalienable nature of human rights. Such a human rights education might help prevent “superpowers” from exercising “super rights” over the less powerful.

–Charles P. Henry in “Educating fro Human Rights,” from the 1990 Moscow Symposium
