Is a City of Colorado Springs sponsored week long celebration of the richness of our community.

Educational programs throughout the week include Bridging Military to Community, Latino and Asian Community Luncheons and an Immigration Symposium. The week concludes with the Cotton Club, a celebration of our community history and a salute to Fannie Mae Duncan. Media Kit
