Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964 Exhibit

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 free-standing, 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.
