Multicultural and Diversity Festival at Chestnut Hill Academy


One of my major entries into the world is food and from there I have opened myself to receive the music, the politics, and the personalities of our global village. It’s amazing the numbers of ethnicities that abound in our local community and it’s equally amazing how little some of us are able to enjoy and learn from some many vibrant cultures.

This is why each year I so appreciate and look forward to the Multicultural and Diversity Festival sponsored by Chestnut Hill Academy and the Springside School. My Aunt Danni is a major organizer of this event which takes place this Sunday, February 27, from 3:00 to 6:00 P.M. at Chestnut Hill Academy, 500 West Willow Grove Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. Here are some words from my aunt, Danni Brockenbrough, about this unique and celebratory festival:

Multicultural and Diversity Day is an annual event hosted by Chestnut Hill Academy and the Springside School. This festival serves to acknowledge and celebrate many of the cultures within our community. The festival fosters understanding and a deeper respect of one another by offering all participants the opportunity to share in learning about and appreciating a wide variety of foods, dress, crafts and performances. We are in our 9th year. We are so thrilled this year to welcome some of the Tuskegee Airmen as our guest speakers. The event is on Sunday February 27, 2011 from 3PM to 6PM. The event is free and open to the public. Please pass this information to everyone you know.

Come out and if you do, believe me, each year you will come again. See you there!
