Bittersweet Harvest Exhibit Open in Nashville


Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964 is a bilingual panel exhibit using oral history excerpts and archival photos to tell the story of our nation’s largest guest worker program with Mexico.

This little-known chapter in our nation’s immigration history provides context for current realities of national policy and the evolution of foreign-born populations in Tennessee communities over time. Each exhibit venue will host a public discussion, “Life on the Fence: A Long View of Guest Worker Programs,” as well as additional, local programming that enables Tennesseans to explore the history of immigration through civil and rational engagement with one another.

Join Vanderbilt professors Katharine Donato and Edward Wright-Rios for the "Life on the Fence" conversation Thursday, January 30, 5:30-7pm.
