Multicultural Fair

A demonstration from Columbia’s Multicultural and Tolerance Fair in 2016.

Columbia High School will host its biennial Multicultural and Tolerance Fair on Thursday, April 19 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. The event features food, music, demonstrations and student work, as well as a keynote presentation by NPR’s StoryCorps facilitator Christina Stanton.

The event is free and open to the public.

Ms. Stanton will give a presentation about the power of storytelling in our everyday lives. The audience will be offered a unique opportunity to learn about recording and preserving the stories of our community for future generations.

“The StoryCorps mission to ‘preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world’ is the perfect topic to be shared with our students in this forum,” said Columbia social studies teacher Wendy McAlonie, who is organizing the event.

The keynote presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. It is sponsored by the East Greenbush Education Foundation through the Ruth Hurr Memorial Fund.
