With a booming immigrant population estimated at around 11.1 percent — that’s roughly 69,260 people, by the way — Nashville sometimes resembles a melting pot in which the heat is rising but little is melting. If you’d like to find out more about those other cultures than just numbers — specifically, about the additional tasks that are unique to the female segment of the immigrant population — come to Martha Silva’s talk about her personal experience as a Latina immigrant, hosted by Scarritt-Bennett Center’s Table Talk for Women. The Center’s female-only series brings women together to explore contemporary topics and learn from each other in an intimate setting. We’d love to have a larger conversation about important political topics like those covered at Table Talk, but there’s room for lots of different forms of communication, and Scarritt-Bennett is honing the craft of informal public intellectual events.
