Bittersweet Harvest Exhibit Opens in Lexington


"Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964" is a bilingual, traveling panel exhibit exploring the roots of Mexican migrant labor to the United States, and is touring towns and cities across the state. Organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and coordinated by Humanities Tennessee, the exhibit examines the experiences of bracero workers and their families, providing rich insight into Mexican American history and historical background to today’s debates on guest worker programs.

The exhibit will be opening at the Beech River Cultural Center and Museum in Lexington on October 1st and will be on display until November 12th.
