Braceros Exhibit

January 25June 30

This exhibition features more than 30 black and white photographs of braceros taken by the photojournalist collective known as the Hermanos Mayo. It also uses narratives, video and artifacts to tell the story of the Bracero Program. The program grew out of a series of bi-lateral agreements between Mexico and the United States, bringing Mexican men to the United States as guest-workers on short-term, primarily agricultural labor contracts. In 1942, these workers came to remedy wartime production shortages by supplying much-needed labor during the early years of World War II.  The Bracero Program, which derived its name from the Spanish word for a manual laborer, “bracero” continued uninterrupted until 1964. During this extensive program, 4.6 million contracts were signed, with many individuals returning several times on different contracts, making it the largest United States contract labor program. An examination of the exhibition images, documents, and artifacts contributes to our understanding of the lives of migrant workers in Mexico and the United States, as well as our knowledge of immigration, nationalism, labor practices, and race relations.
This exhibit is free and open to the public
