Transcript Panels and workshops made up a large part of Diversity Month's activities, allowing students to learn something about the many different cultures on our Earth. Photo by Noel Stone.

Diversity Month Films, workshops, panels, performances and speakers were just some of the events that made up the Cultural Diversity Month for 1992. The theme was "United Colors . . . united cause," and sought to show the diversity of our world and how we can all live together. Events varied greatly and many subjects were addressed from a discussion on Kenya's diverse community to a presentation on Juda ism. Films like Boyz in the Hood, Dry White Season and A Look at Vietnam and the plays Stereotypes and Just a Little Mark were shown as examples of modern day problems that stem from the diversity of our world. Workshops like, "Ebony to Ivory," a sensitivity workshop sponsored by the Panhellenic Council, worked to give people a little insight to the differences and similarities in different cultures. Also held were a lip synch contest, the Miss Black and Gold Pageant, the Mr. Black Male Positive Image contest, an International Student Soccer Tournament, a performance by the Good News Gospel Choir and a slide presentation on India. Cambodian, Filipino and Thai dancers also performed. Students were also given a chance to sample foods from other countries and nationalities. Chinese, African-American and Mexican- American cuisines were offered each week in the month at the American Cafe in the University Center. The events were sponsored by the Council of Ethnic Organizations.-Wendy Cockcroft 66 Student Life Diversity Monthmmm67
