Conversations of Color: Cultural Appreciation vs. Cultural Appropriation – Thursday, October 19, 2017

Culture is the beliefs, customs, arts, etc., of a particular societal group. There are aspects of different cultures we genuinely admire and appreciate.  Admiration of a culture is often interpreted as appropriating a culture. Join Nija Leocadio and Nicholas Voelker for an interactive conversation about where the line is between appreciation and appropriation.
