Free entertainment can be seen tomorrow on any local television station. However, quality free entertainment can only be caught at Centennial Hall, where the fourth annual ONE LOVE Multicultural Showcase will take place at 7 p.m.

With artists from every culture providing entertainment, the event planners - Theta Nu Xi multicultural sorority - aim to highlight the diversity at the UA.

"It's celebrating the diversity of our campus and our community and our world," said Opal Tometi, history senior and multicultural chair. "And we're celebrating artists and allowing people to express themselves through their art."

After packing the Modern Languages Auditorium last year, Theta Nu Xi was able to secure Centennial Hall this year with the help of the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, who donated $1,500 for the event, Tometi said.

Instrumental band The Bodhi Tree and reggae jam band Monster will perform, as well as a variety of dancers, poets and even some jugglers.

"(Students) might not know that there are all these different groups (in the community). They might now know that they could join a Samba group," Tometi said. "They can gain an awareness of that (diversity), because there's no set culture in Tucson."

Tometi said break-dancing group Les Avenge - which features a UA student - will be one of the highlights of the event.

"It's fun, it's free and you won't regret coming," Tometi said.
