The International Arts amp; Entertainment Variety Show and Food Festival was held recently in the Edsel Godbey Appalachian Center located on the SKCTC Cumberland campus. Now in its fifth year, the event, coordinated by Clara A. Pope and Carolyn M. Sundy, attracted several hundred people to a food tasting affair and variety show. Foods from around the globe were served. Dancers, vocalists and instrumentalists from across the area performed. The event as noted by Mrs. Pope is held each year to Celebrate the rich ethnic diversity found in Harlan County. We are blessed in this community to have so many people who are interested in furthering understanding, tolerance and appreciation of cultures outside our own, she said.
