11/19: “Who’s Your Mama?” at CWRU



The country has a mixed-race president, and Cleveland’s mayor has a mixed background as well. Case Western Reserve University’s Flora Stone Mather Center for Women is taking up an issue that’s become increasingly common: the challenge of raising multi-racial, multi-cultural children, whose backgrounds these days are often far more exotic than half-Italian, half-Irish. Four women will host an interactive panel discussion titled “Who’s Your Mama?” that will grapple with questions about raising children to appreciate and respect their own diverse backgrounds as well as those of others. It takes place from 11:30-1 p.m. in the Spartan Room at CWRU’s Thwing Hall (11111 Euclid Ave.). Call 216.368.0985 or e-mail amp89@case.edu for more information. — Anastasia Pantsios
