Next Door Neighbors: Sudanese at Scarritt-Bennett Center

Nashville is becoming quite the destination spot for refugees and immigrants. I don’t know why, but it’s causing Nashville to become an even more diverse city. One of the major refugee groups come from Sudan, in Africa. Life there vs here is completely different, so it’s increasingly important for Nashvillians to take a closer look at our new residents.

That’s where the Scarritt-Bennett Center comes in. Tonight at 6pm they’re hosting a free event designed to open our eyes to Sudanese refugees. This event will feature excerpts from the documentary Next Door Neighbors: Sudanese so you can catch a glimpse of the daily life of this culture as refugees adjust to life in Nashville. Then you can  get an even better understanding as people from this culture offer their thoughts and answer questions in a follow-up panel discussion.

RSVPs are suggested. You can RSVP online, call 615.340.7557 or email
