Dr. Clyde Rivers with Dr. George C. Wright
Ambassador Clyde Rivers, the Ambassador at Large for the Republic of Burundi Africa, spoke to the student body of Prairie View A & M University in Prairie View Texas on November 2014.
Prairie View A & M University is a historical black college in the United States and Ambassador Rivers felt it was a monumental day and an honor to speak to the student body and the facility of this prestigious institution. He spoke on human rights and fundamental freedoms for the people of the world.
Ambassador Rivers was quoted saying, “It is very important that the young people of the world understand we have a responsibility to protect the rights and freedoms of every individual born in the world. The guiding principle that makes human rights work is to live the Golden Rule, ‘Treat others the way you want to be treated.’”
Ambassador Rivers went on to say of Dr. George Wright the President of A & M; “In my opinion he is one of the elite presidents of an education institution in the world today. Prairie View A & M University is thriving under his leadership and producing top graduates in all fields. It was an impressive day for me as I visited this outstanding institution.”
