Exhibit Puts the Spotlight
On Multiracial Families

The increasing diversity of the American family is the focus of a new exhibit at California State University, Sacramento.

"Of Many Colors: Portraits of Multiracial Families" runs Oct. 2-30 in the Multi-Cultural Center in room 1010 of the library. Exhibit hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The exhibit is one in a series of events celebrating the University's Year of Unity, a campus effort to promote tolerance, understanding and mutual respect in both the University community and the community at large.

The award-winning show, featuring photos by Gigi Kaeser and text by Peggy Gillespie, tells the stories of 20 diverse families formed through interracial relationships or adoption.

Photographs from the exhibit have been featured in a cover story in the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine and in Teaching Tolerance magazine. The exhibit also earned a Multicultural Recognition Award from the Regional Library for Educational Improvement.

More information is available by calling (916) 278-6101. Media assistance is available by calling (916) 278-6156.
