“Remarkable Journey” Screening and Discussion
June 27, 2019 @ 5:30 pm
The Southern Culture Movie Series will present a screening and discussion of Remarkable Journey.
Through lively first-person stories, Remarkable Journey explores the ‘pioneer’ generation of Indian immigrants to North Carolina, as the world’s oldest and largest democracies met here in the midst of the Civil Rights movement and beyond. These energetic newcomers helped fuel the expansion of opportunities in science and business in our region, as they met the challenge of passing the “essence of India” on to their children.

The Southern Culture Movie Series, which takes place each summer, is designed to be an entertaining and critical introduction to the American South, and most films are accompanied by commentary from a topical expert. While intended especially for international students and scholars, the series is free and open to everyone. Refreshments will be served.
