The signs of a multicultural America are everywhere, as the nation grows more diverse every day.

Today, News & Notes kicks off its month-long series on multiculturalism.

What does it mean to be multicultural? Is America really a melting pot of cultures, or do our differences keep us apart?

For insight, NPR's Tony Cox talks with Ronald Takaki — professor emeritus of ethnic studies at the University of California at Berkeley — and Jen Chau, founder and executive director of Swirl, a national multi-ethnic organization.
