DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit school district is putting on events at four schools highlighting a range of ethnic groups within the system.

The Detroit Public Schools’ first annual Taste of DPS Multicultural Expo takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at four schools.

The district says the events feature the various cultures found in the system, including Hispanic, Bangladeshi, Hmong, African, African-American and Middle Eastern.

It says participants “will experience international cultures, taste cultural food, receive … gifts from community partners, and have the opportunity to buy Michigan grown vegetables.”

Amelia Earhart Elementary-Middle School will feature Hispanic culture, Davison Elementary-Middle School will feature Bangladeshi and Hmong cultures, Marcus Garvey Academy will feature African and African-American cultures, and Gardner Elementary School will feature Middle Eastern culture.
