The YWCA Knoxville & the Tennessee Valley will host the annual Diversity Day & Race Against Racism on Saturday, January 19 at the Phyllis Wheatley Center in East Knoxville. Set to coincide with other diversity celebrations around Martin Luther King Jr Day, the event seeks to uplift the community with inspirational speakers, resource booths presented by area nonprofits and businesses, and a true celebration of the many diverse cultures of the East Knoxville community. Attendees also enjoy live music, face painting, light refreshments, arts & crafts, and more. In addition, a certified 5K run, 1-mile walk, and Kids Fun Run attract hundreds of community members from outside the East Knoxville community.
