Welcome to Shelbyville

    Downtown Library Community Room

Welcome to Shelbyville – Directed by Kim A. Snyder. 67 Minutes; 2010.

WELCOME TO SHELBYVILLE is a glimpse of America at a crossroads. In one town in the heart of America’s bible belt, a community grapples with rapidly changing demographics. Longtime African-American and White residents are challenged with how to integrate with a growing Latino population and the more recent arrival of hundreds of Somali refugees of Muslim faith. Set on the eve of the 2008 Presidential election, the film captures the interaction between these residents as they navigate new waters against the backdrop of a tumultuous year.
