PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The life and legacy of Mahatma Gandhi will be celebrated Sunday in a program sponsored by the India Association of Rhode Island.
The afternoon's events, promoting peace, nonviolence and tolerance, will commemorate the life and message of the Indian independence leader and include presentations by students, dancers and musicians. Students are invited to prepare an essay of up to 300 words about Gandhi and his message, or a poster about the event's themes.
The program will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Mahatma Gandhi Cultural Center, Sts. Sahag and Mesrob Armenian Church, 70 Jefferson St., Providence.
The center, which opened in October with help from a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, provides a home for activities related to the social, cultural and educational heritage of India.
