Immigration Dialogues @ MAMA

Date: Time: 6:30 pm–8:00 pm
Contact: Rachael Shah,
North Star high school students, UNL students, and Midwestern African Museum of Art (MAMA) Associates are coming together to host a night of African food, museum tours, conversations and panel presentations.

The event will include a sampling of North African foods, a tour of the museum, and a panel presentation from students at UNL and North Star High School, who will be presenting their research on immigration and refugee resettlement in Lincoln. We’ll also hear from Seth Mock, founder of MAMA, about his vision for the museum and his personal experiences moving to Lincoln.

The purpose of this event is to share stories, build community, and create cross-cultural dialogue between students and community members interested in immigration and refugee resettlement. This event is educational in nature, and we invite all interested community members to attend. Students from UNL and North Star High School will share their knowledge on the history of immigration in Nebraska, the economic impacts of refugee resettlement, and the local effects of nationwide policies concerning immigration. We hope this knowledge will empower community members and enrich their understanding of Nebraska’s legacy as a home to diverse peoples from around the globe.
