Redefining small town Tennessee 
In the same year that the U.S. elected its first black president, equally monumental social changes were underway in Shelbyville: The historic demographics of blacks and whites were shifting to include Somali refugees, just as in the decade before Hispanics began settling in the Southern town.

The documentary "Welcome to Shelbyville," which will be screened tonight by the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, chronicles the complicated experiences of change from multiple viewpoints and investigates how the misconceptions we hold about others evolve in the face of personal connections.
