DETROIT (AP) – Former President Bill Clinton sees an interdependent world where problems and successes rely on how people of various colors, backgrounds and languages look at others around them.

In a 45-minute talk yesterday at the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit, the two-term Democratic president challenged the audience with doing whatever they can to positively influence change.

His visit as part of African American Family Magazine’s Distinguished Speakers Series had been rescheduled after bad weather forced him to cancel the appearance in June.

Terrorism, instability in the Middle East and other parts of the globe, the disparity in health care in the United States and a “green” economy were used to illustrate his speech that was part history lesson, part current world politics.
