The third in Nashville Public Television’s Next Door Neighbors documentary series, Hablamos Espanol profiles Nashville’s Hispanic community and looks at Nashville’s status as a new destination city for refugees and immigrants. It explores the rich diversity of people now calling Nashville home. Across the United States, mid-sized cities like Nashville, TN are experiencing unprecedented growth in their international populations. Together these communities are redefining the traditional international city on a smaller local scale. As our new neighbors rebuild their lives in Nashville, their experiences, contributions and conflicts impact the city, but they are challenged by isolation and barriers unknown to many Nashvillians. How Nashville addresses its changing demographic will be important for the future of similar communities across the country.
