Students at Florida State University will soon have the opportunity to hear Marc Johnston-Guerrero speak about race and diversity at the 2017 Multicultural Leadership Summit.

Johnston-Guerrero’s keynote address will cover multiracial identity especially as it exists in a classroom setting. This is part of this year’s MLS theme, Dumping the Melting Pot: Embracing the Mosaic, which will emphasize the problem of assimilation as a result of viewing diversity in the United States as a melting pot. The summit will explore the impact of acknowledging and celebrating different identities and backgrounds in their many forms rather than treating the country as one people with a singular culture.

Toni Sanchez knows what it’s like to feel like you're never enough.
