Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964

Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program 1942-1964, a moving new bilingual exhibition organized by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History (NMAH) and circulated by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), 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. Consisting of 15 freestanding, illustrated banners, the exhibition combines recent scholarship, powerful photographs from the Smithsonian’s collection, and audio excerpts from oral histories contributed by former contract workers.

The exhibit will be on display from September 2 - November 12, 2017 on the first floor of Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte near the New Books Reading Area and Research Help Desk.  Learn more about the exhibit and program:
