Friendship Across the Miles
Manchester's Turkish community celebrates friendship
The Turkish community in New Hampshire is not large, members said. Nor is it like many immigrant groups, who come to the United States to escape political oppression or economic hardship.
But the Cultural Center does teach the Turkish language to children, and it provides opportunities to come together for religious feasts and social events.
"All you hear about is radical Muslim groups," Peterson said. "I had no clue what to expect. They were the nicest people: friendly, kind."
