WUCF TV explores diversity on Metro Center Outlook & Global Perspectives

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

As part of WUCF TV’s Diversity Week programming, Metro Center Outlook looks at diversity in education and the workforce.  Host Dr. Diane Trees sits down with Maria Cherjovsky, president of the Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Diversity Council and Marco Davis, Deputy Director White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics, to talk about the opportunities and challenges diversity brings.

Metro Center Outlook airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9 a.m. 

Following Metro Center Outlook, civil rights leader Julian Bond sits down with host John Bersia on Global Perspectives.   Bond explores the changing views on diversity in the country and talks about what it will take to truly make a difference. 

“The Southern Poverty Law Center did a study of what high school students know about the civil rights movement.  They know four words, ‘I have a dream.’  They know two people, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King,” said Bond.  “But the story of the civil rights movements is much broader than that. Many more people, many more words.  If that is what our youngsters are learning in high school, they are not learning enough.”

Global Perspectives airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9:30 a.m.
