Join us for excerpts from the documentary NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS: SUDANESE to catch a glimpse of the daily life of this culture as the refugees adjust to Nashville. Then get an even better understanding as people from this culture offer their thoughts and answer questions in a follow-up panel discussion.
ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY: After profiling Nashville’s Kurdish, Somali, Hispanic and Bhutanese communities, Nashville Public Television’s award-winning Next Door Neighbors series, turns its eye toward the city’s burgeoning Sudanese neighbors. Sudan is the largest country in Africa, and the Sudanese in Nashville reflect the diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds of Sudan. The episode comes at a poignant time. In January 2011, a referendum was held that would divide Sudan. The turnout in Nashville to vote on this referendum was the third highest in the country, with more voters than in Chicago, Boston or Seattle. With the potential division of their former home, Next Door Neighbors: Sudanese explores what would happen next for the refugees when there is a chance to return home. Learn more.
