Join us for a very special evening to celebrate the fascinating history of immigration in Knoxville with Yassin Terou, owner of Yassin’s Falafel House, recently voted the Reader’s Digest Nicest Place in America. The event will be held at the historic Laurel Theatre and will feature international culinary treats and local brews and cocktails. Listen to local historians such as Jack Neely and Randall Deford speak about how immigration has shaped our city both in the distant and recent past, hear about Laurel Theater’s fascinating history of counter cultural movements, and have a private audience with Yassin as he talks about his role in bringing light to the colorful history of immigration in East Tennessee. Along the way, enjoy music and dancing inspired by Knoxville’s both old and new immigrant groups.
