Urban, college students (n=160) from diverse cultural backgrounds received instruction in writing allegories conveying generalizations about human conduct and peace. Students' original allegories were analyzed. A value survey (Rokeach, 1973) showed strong cultural differences and similarities. Final questionnaires after discussion concerning values diversity indicated students gained multi-cultural understandings.
