"Welcome to Shelbyville" @ monthly film series

Monday, September 12, 2011 - 11:00pm to Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 1:00am

The story of a community grappling with rapidly changing demographics is the theme of "Welcome to Shelbyville," a documentary about a small town in Tennessee.  A short distance from the 19th century birthplace of the KKK, longime African American and white residents overcome fear and prejudice to get to know members of a growing Latino population and hundreds of Muslim Somali refugees who now make Shelbyville their home.   Free and everyone welcome.  The "Builidng a Culture of Peace Film Series" is sponsored by Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, AFSC, the Concord UU Church, Temple Beth Jacob, UN UCC Peace with Justice Advocates, and NH Peace Action.
