Dinner parties designed to heal racial divide in an English community

In my search for dinner party ideas, I came across this inspiring article about how dinner parties are making a difference for this English community. Here is a snippet from the article and a link is added if you'd like to read the whole piece.

"The gathering was part of a series of dinner parties to bring together complete strangers from both the majority white British and the minority Asian communities. "It's shocking, but we don't really have any friends in the Asian community," said Jade Blades, 36, one of the guests at Mrs Hickman's dinner. Shakeela Khan, 30, sitting next to her, agreed. "I only know white English people through work, and we don't socialise," she said.
