Somali

The second in Nashville Public Television's Next Door Neighbors documentary series, focusing on Nashville's growing Somali community. Over 5,000 Somali refugees now call Nashville their home. They left a war-torn country and many still have family trying to survive in Somalia and in refugee camps across Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Yemen, and other countries. While many Somalis were resettled directly to Nashville, others migrated here from cities like Minneapolis, Seattle, San Diego and Columbus Ohio. For most, life in Nashville is about work, sending money back home and trying to balance Somali traditions and cultures while adjusting to life in the US.
