Race Unity Day

Alcoa (WVLT) -- About 100 East Tennesseans spent the day learning about different cultures and promoting friendship and cooperation in their community.

Race Unity Day featured religious and charitable information booths, a cultural fashion show, and various ethnic foods.

Organizers say Race Unity Day held to highlight the positives of living in such a diverse area.

"It keeps our communities growing," said Thomas Mares, one of the event's organizers. "It kind of shows the strength that we have, even though we have a large diversity, we still are able to unite, come together, be together peacefully as one."

This year, was the event's third.
