Guests entering last year's Ethnic Enrichment Festival in Swope Park. This year, the festival features food, music, art and more from over 60 different countries.

This weekend, the Ethnic Enrichment Festival sets up shop in Swope Park. How do we think about ethnicity in America today? We invite a professor who focuses on ethnic and cultural studies, the co-founder of the Latino Writer's Collective and a local resident who runs the Indonesia booth to share their thoughts.
