Part of the 2018 Diversity Celebration
Tuesday, April 10, 2018 / 4:00pm-6:00pm
201 Plemmons Student Union (Blue Ridge Ballroom)
Free event

Open to all students, staff and faculty, this event is focused on teaching elementary/middle school students in the Watauga community about different aspects of culture, which they may not otherwise know about. This activity provides participants with an opportunity to explore culture through a performance by Gran’daddy Junebug, who teaches important lessons through the African oral tradition of “call and response.”

About the Diversity Celebration

The Diversity Celebration features a wide array of local and international music, eclectic dancing, delectable food, and imaginative crafts. Appalachian students, faculty, staff, K-12 schools, and members of the local community are all invited to join us in this celebration of cultures through art and entertainment.

The Diversity Celebration supports and enhances Appalachian State University's mission of "accepting the responsibility to be actively involved in addressing the educational, economic, cultural, and societal needs of the changing region, state, nation, and world," by providing a venue where diverse perspectives, cultures and values are accepted, appreciated and celebrated.
