Other Cultures

Welcoming and Learning

The old emphasis upon superficial differences that separate peoples must give way to education for citizenship in the human community.
Norman Cousins

The African American Voice will be introducing people from different cultures to our Spokane African American community. They come as transplants, immigrants, refugees, exchange students and visitors for a multitude of reasons. Our cultures have many similarities but also many differences. These can be challenging situations for all of us. Let us teach each other and welcome each other and celebrate our diversity.

African American Writer Dominique Christina in Spokane

Dominique Christina is a poet, activist, educator, mother and African American.  She spoke to two audiences in Spokane. On the Saranac rooftop she spoke to a predominantly young feminist crowd. The next evening she spoke at Gonzaga University to young creative writing students and local writers. When organizations bring talented and gifted speakers to town who bring messages of interest to a Black audience there appears to be a disconnect. Either we don’t get the message or we don’t give a damn about the message. Both engagements were free to the public. Gonzaga University has a whole program this fall around hate.  Communities for Justice Fall Events
