What is Multi-Cultural? Dictionary.com defines Multicultural as “of, relating to, or representing several different cultures or cultural elements”. To me, this means that multiple cultures are coming together forming a melting pot of their differences. This is seen in bell hooks, A Revolution of Values: The Promise of Multi-Cultural Change when she talks about the desegregation of her high school. In this she talks about her best friend Ken who was a white male and took risks to befriend her. This essay talks about the struggles of being African-American and a female during a rough point in American history, but what bell hooks really wants the reader to understand, is the importance of friendship and how it can create a cultureof equality, …show more content…
She states “It was a last-minute decision. I had just finished a new book. Whenever I finish a work, I always feel lost, as though a steady anchor has been taken away and there in no sure ground under my feet.” (bell hooks pg. 4).

This just further proves that we need to open to other cultures and step into their shoes to be able to full understand what different cultures are going through. To be able to truly face reality and challenge yourself you have to identify what the problem is, and for most people that is really difficult because they need to take a step back and critically analyze what they are doing wrong in the first place.
