The world’s diaspora has brought people of different races, ethnicities, cultures, and faiths together to create diverse communities across the globe. But with that transplantation come conflicts. This fall, the Center on Religion and Professions is screening a series of films that explore communities affected by religious diaspora, and we want you to join us! Each evening will feature a documentary followed by a conversation.
To kick off the series, we’ll watch Musafer: Sikhi is Traveling. The hour-long documentary takes a look at how a younger generation of Sikhs has emigrated across the world, taking their faith with them in a tumultuous time for those who practice Sikhism.
Professor Emeritus Paul Wallace of the Political Science department will join us for a conversation after the screening.
Date/Time: 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, February 13
Location: Missouri United Methodist Church, 209 S. Ninth St. Meet us in the church lobby at the corner of 9th and Elm. Downtown street parking is available, and the Hitt Street Garage is the closest to the church.
Cost: Free. Refreshments will be provided.
