Modern Immigration Program Featured at North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK, N.D. - What does immigration in North Dakota look like today? Join a discussion of modern immigration, with a focus on refugee resettlement, at 2 p.m. on Feb. 5 at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum. “Meet Your New Neighbors” will include a short film screening relating to refugee resettlement, followed by a question and answer panel with resettled residents in the Bismarck/Mandan community. Ask questions and listen to first-hand accounts as immigrants to North Dakota discuss the resettlement process, living in North Dakota as an immigrant, and issues related to New Americans in our communities. Also included will be photograph previews of immigrants who are current residents of North Dakota. The photographs will be accessioned into the collection of the State Historical Society of North Dakota, and some will be displayed inside the Inspiration Gallery.
This program is part of the State Historical Society of North Dakota’s Sensational Sundays program. Sensational Sundays are free programs sponsored by the State Historical Society that include a variety of lectures, concerts, movies, and tours that provide engaging, educational, historic, and cultural information. The program is cosponsored by Bismarck Global Neighbors and the State Historical Society of North Dakota.
