Contemporary Issues Series: Creating a Multicultural Community
Beverly Singer will address the challenges of living in an urban city with people from many cultural backgrounds. In response to the murders of two homeless Native American men in Albuquerque last year, she will focus on the current perceptions of Native Americans in Albuquerque and provide insight into the ways our community can strive to create an authentic multicultural community.

She is currently director of the Alfonso Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies whose mission is to collaborate with communities to promote understanding and respect of all cultures.
