Education and Training at Pearl S. Buck International is predicated on and seeks to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in all programming.
“When they come here, [people] should be taught as the basis for American citizenship that here we may differ each from the other, and that diversity is our strength and our nature, and each man is to believe what he feels true, and our one common belief is this.”
Pearl S. Buck, On Discovering America, 1937
“Race prejudice is not only a shadow over the colored it is a shadow over all of us, and the shadow is darkest over those who feel it least and allow its evil effects to go on.”
