Welcome to Shelbyville – screening and discussion – Fairwood Library
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us for a screening of the documentary Welcome to Shelbyville. The film (66 minutes) will be followed by a short facilitated discussion. Shelbyville’s long-time residents are challenged with how to best integrate the recent arrival of hundreds of Somali refugees of Muslim faith hired by the local Tyson chicken-processing plant. Examples of less recent Latino immigrant experience in Shelbyville provide a meaningful comparison and pathway to understanding.
