Diversity is not a dirty word. Nor is multiculturalism. It is simple. The world has changed before our eyes and we need to change, too.
I am Dr. Al Felice. I am a Doctor of Psychology with a specialization in ethnic and social minority cultures.
Multiculturism is an invitation to embrace diversity. Diversity of thought, shape, color, culture, attributes, character, race, gender, and abilities. At best, multiculturism is a dream for the beloved community- an inclusive community where everyone can have a meaningful role. It may be a Utopian dream, but if we do not dream it, and practice it in small steps, we will fail as a species.
This blog is my exploration of that dream and its mandate. I invite you to challenge me, offer ideas, express your frustration and share your delights.
In my homeland of Trinidad, West Indies, we have a saying: All of we is one. Despite the pain we cause each other, I hold this to be true.
