Cultural Appreciation Day
Wednesday, April 04, 2011
Blue Dragon Room
9:00 a.m. and 10:20 a.m. (Two sessions)
It has been said that race is the plague of civilization. Yet, America has been enriched by its waves of immigrants. On Wednesday, April 04, 2011, we will explore the phenomena of race and ethnicity. In doing this, it is important to suspend our own biases as much as possible and to take a cultural relativity approach.
We must not let our own cultural biases get in the way of understanding the lives of other people. Of course, this is a very difficult task given the emotionally charged feelings and deep beliefs that most people have concerning race and ethnicity. However, suspending these attitudinal barriers in order to gain a better understanding of the phenomena is worth the effort.
Information tables about various cultures and subcultures will be set up in the lobby of the Parker Student Union.
