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.

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.
