When: Thu., Nov. 7, 5:30-7 p.m. 2019
Join us for a conversation on the refugee and immigrant experience in Virginia with author Deepak Singh and refugee resettlement coordinator Seyoum Berhe in connection with our exhibition "New Virginians: 1619–2019 & Beyond." Singh chronicles his downward mobility as an immigrant to a small town in Virginia in his book "How May I Help You? An Immigrant's Journey from MBA to Minimum Wage." Berhe, who came to the United States from Ethiopia during a time of political unrest to attend college, has worked in the field of refugee resettlement for the past 25 years.
