A public forum, "American Cultures: From Concept to Classroom (1989-2009 and Beyond)," took place on Thursday, April 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Free Speech Movement Café at Moffitt Library.  Adopted 20 years ago, the program has created a complex, nuanced and interdisciplinary approach to multi-cultural education that has become a national model. This event celebrated the dynamic history and looks ahead to future innovations.
