With the holiday season in full swing, Knoxville natives have a plethora of activities to look forward to this December.
“Dear White People” does an excellent job of drawing back the curtains that many individuals have been hiding behind when it comes to racism and its part in today’s society. Although many people believe racism is a part of our past and it is not currently a part of our present, “Dear White People” challenges this way of thinking by telling the “fictional” story of four black students who are trying to navigate their way through an Ivy League college, consisting of a primarily white student population.
Knoxville held it’s 48th annual Fine Craft Show at the Jacob Building in Chilhowee Park on Nov. 14-16. Artists from all over the region came to display diverse crafts and talents, including glass blowing demonstrations and glass bead making.

With fall in full swing, activities in East Tennessee make for eventful weekends. From child friendly fun at the zoo to haunted mansions for the thrill seeker in everyone, Knoxville is the place to be in the fall.
