To reaffirm its commitment to building a diverse and inclusive community, the City of Riverside celebrated Race Equality Week October 12-17, 2010. This year marks the seventh time the City has been involved in this national week of awareness. Riverside commemorated the week through a series of events centered on the theme - “Race: Are We So Different?” The week was highlighted by the “Diversity through Performance” signature event on October 17 at Main Street Riverside, which brought together various local groups for an afternoon of breathtaking dances and performances showcasing the culturally diverse populace of our region.
Additional events during the week included: a staged reading of To Kill a Mockingbird to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel; exploration of the nationally touring Race Exhibit and keynote speech by Dr. Yolanda Moses; and an interactive presentation of Wherever There’s a Fight, a book about civil rights struggles past and present.
