Strangers in Town: A Film Discussion

Date and Time: August 27, 2022, 7:00 PM CT

(view on google maps)

Strangers in Town tells the story of how global migration transformed and enriched Garden City, Kansas. Amidst the increased demands for housing, social services, education, and infrastructure, current students at Garden City High School are flourishing. This film explores their stories, gives meaning to the city's motto "The World Grows Here," and provides an inspiring view of human possibility in the face of change that resonates in all communities. After the screening of the 30-minute film, take part in a timely discussion that promotes understanding and uncovers our shared humanity.

Film Discussion led by:Debra Bolton

This presentation is part of "21st Century Civics," a collection of resources that invite Kansans to participate in community discussions and learn more about the history of American democracy and the shared responsibilities of citizenship. "21st Century Civics" is made possible with support from "A More Perfect Union: America at 250," an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
