Never before in history has a society been as diverse as the United States is today. And never before have so many different traditions, beliefs and values been integrated into a single culture.

An environment that celebrates diversity not only fosters positive self-concept but also enables children to converse about differences and see the value in creating an inclusive community.

Downsize for Diversity

I was used to real food with a lot of flavor, a lot of life to it, and I used to say, "Man, I can't eat your food." And it was a joke between all of us. And so, we started this thing where they'd come to my house and eat my mother's and my aunts' breakfasts that would go right into lunch.  And I still do remember that moment when they said, "Sure, let's go to your place."
Their parents thought it was a good idea and so it kind of started, this sharing around food. Our house, it was so alive, full of people and kids in and out, little feasts all the time that kept on running. And their meals, they were quieter kind of weekends, but they really came over to my world and they had to learn to fit in, mix with my crowd. It was a good thing, and that memory sort of lasts.
