The refugees who call Amarillo home have overcome incredible adversity in their home countries. Yet after surviving war, famine, and persecution, many of these men and women now find themselves alone in our neighborhoods. Each person has their own story to tell—harrowing, excruciating, victorious, and dramatic tales. But who will listen?
On Thursday nights at 6 PM throughout the school year, we will gather with refugee communities to hear their stories and celebrate their cultures. Each week focuses on a different community and culture. Come with your family to learn about their cultures, try their foods, help them practice English, and make new friends! Importantly, this year's focus is on the development of story books. You'll have the opportunity to hear their stories and provide feedback so that the final printed versions will be incredible. Come and be a part of something huge!
The Table Talk program has been on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we are resuming in September 2021. Send us an email to be put on a list to be notified when it resumes.
