Bittersweet Harvest Exhibit Opening


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.
