Speakout

May 21, 2006

THE ISSUE: -- Merriweather Post Pavilion hosts Wine in the Woods this weekend, then the HFStival on May 27-28. Talk about diversity. Isn't this what Columbia is all about?

Diversity? Maybe a faint echo

Columbia was originally about ideals of diversity that go a bit deeper than Wine in the Woods and the HFSestival. Columbia is/was about diversity in housing, employment, and education. Diversity in cultural events also played a part in the original concept of Columbia. There may be a faint echo of that ideal in these two events.
