Multi-ethnic supper at the Multicultural Center of the South on Sat, July 19, 6 pm to 8 pm

One day I believe that a wide array of Shreveporters are going to know and value the Multicultural Center of the South, located at 401 Texas St.

It is going to take time.

Have you visited the center?

Wandering through the fascinating and smartly-designed exhibits in the 2-storey display engenders a revelation about Shreveport. It's hard to avoid a sense of "So this is who we are!" The center's limited exposure is fairly understandable; there's the downtown location and the parking factor.

But Valarie Gunn and a marvelous potpourri of citizens have created a stimulating center that demands local attention.

MCS won a big boost this year When Lt. Gov Landrieu announced the stops on the new African-American Heritage Trail. MCS is on the trail.

Their event this weekend:
The 3rd Annual Taste of Culture Fundraiser
July 19, 2008, 6 pm - 9 pm
$35 per person

Says Ms. Gunn, "Come & sample food and wines from around the world. Tickets on sale now at the Center or can be purchased online."
