Adventures in Multicultural Living Syndicated Column

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang writes the nationally syndicated column Adventures in Multicultural Living which invites us to join her and her children on their everyday adventures into the new multicultural reality in which we all live. She hopes that "multiculturalism" can be more than a catchword that is dutifully trotted out for every school pageant or international potluck, but actually becomes an integrated part of our everyday lives. These columns include explorations of multicultural events and cultural practices, thoughts about raising children with cultures, visits with colorful personalities straddling different cultures, stories of cross-cultural clashes, and moments of resonance that cut across cultures and move us all.

Come walk with us.
