Video: Postville Before the Raid

Through the prism of Postville, Iowa (population 1,500), this award-winning PBS documentary examines what happens when a once homogenous town becomes a new model for the American melting pot. Filmed before the infamous ICE raid that destroyed Agriprocessors and sent Sholom Rubashkin to Prison, this video investigates the roots of cultural misunderstanding, explores the meaning of community, showcases the manifestation of underlying racism and offers a glimpse into what might be the future of small town America.
