April 3-27, 2nd Floor, Main Library
The Smithsonian traveling exhibit “Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964,” which documents Mexican temporary laborers in the United States, will be on display at the Evanston Public Library from April 3 to April 27. The exhibit describes the experiences of bracero workers and their families, and provides context for today’s debates on immigration and guest worker programs.
The exhibit’s stay at the Library is made possible through a partnership with the Dittmar Gallery and the Latina and Latino Studies Department at Northwestern University.
Come see this great exhibit about the Bracero Program – it really sheds new light on the discussion we had about The Devil’s Highway.
