At 7:45 p.m. there will a candlelit walk from the Harlem Renaissance Center to ALANA Cultural Center, where there will be a dinner for participants to discuss the themes of the day in a welcoming environment.

Learn about healthy eating Korean-style on Tuesday! At 11:30 a.m., the Korean Student Association is holding a fun interactive workshop in the Coop media lounge. Participants can choose their own ingredients to make their own Kimbops, or Korean sushi rolls.!
