Welcoming America Comes to Cleveland! Reception, Movie Screening, Panel Discussion

When: Tue., July 16, 5:30 p.m. 2013

Help launch the Welcoming America Initiative in Cleveland! Join us for the reception, screening of "Welcome to Shelbyville," followed by a panel discussion. A documentary about immigrant integration in America's heartland, "Welcome to Shelbyville" takes an intimate look at a southern Tennessee town as its residents - whites and African Americans, recently arrived Somalis and Latinos who came a decade earlier - grapple with their beliefs, their histories, and their evolving ways of life. Set as Obama is elected and the economy is collapsing, it is a tremendously powerful film about race, immigration, and America. www.welcomingamerica.eventbrite.com
