Somali is the second documentary in Nashville Public Television’s Next Door Neighbors series, which features stories, unknown to many native Nashvillians, from inside Nashville’s growing refugee and immigrant populations. For many Somalis, surviving in Nashville has been about work, making money, sending whatever they can back home and getting by. Nashville’s Somalis are generally young working age adults, many of whom missed out on any formal education. Today some Somalis are looking to education for a glimpse of the elusive American dream. Somali tells the story of a community in transition.
