LIVING WITH DIVERSITY TODAY
Please join Leicester Friends of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies for this event:
Saturday 6th February, 6.30 – 9.00 pm
Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre, Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF
Leicester was one of the first examples of a diverse city in Britain, although this caused difficulty for old and new citizens. How could people with such different cultural, religious, and culinary habits ever be truly British? Can British people really support Indian cricket? Three generations later and we ask similar questions of Eastern Europeans, Russians, and Somalians. How deep is our multiculturalism? Where does diversity start? What are the barriers?
To help us focus on these issues, drawing from experience, and from Hindu and Christian literature, Revd Dr Tom Wilson, Director of St Philips Centre, and Shaunaka Rishi Das of OCHS hold a public conversation to explore the issues and promote an open discussion.
