WFU guest lecturer to discuss diversity issues
By Jacob McConnico
Dr. Hoda Hosseini, co-founder of the Broward County Institute for the Healing of Racism in Florida, will take part in a conference on diversity issues titled The Destiny of America: RACE-ing into the 21st Century at 7 p.m. Feb. 12 at Wake Forest University in Carswell Halls Annenberg Forum (Room 111). The program is free and open to the public.
Hosseini, who received an award from the United Nations Broward County Chapter in 2001 for her work in promoting race relations, will use the latest scientific findings during the program at Wake Forest to prove the essential oneness of the human race and explain how this understanding is essential in unifying people across all ethnic and cultural lines.
The conference is presented as part of Wake Forests ongoing celebration of the theme for the 2003-2004 academic year, Fostering Dialogue: Civil Discourse in an Academic Community. The theme is dedicated to exploring how free people with passionate interests and beliefs can communicate openly without turning dialogue into discord.
