Brutal Conditions of US Agriculture Workers Documented in Photo Essays
September 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The conditions of farm workers have deteriorated greatly since the 1970s and 80s. Taking inflation into account, wages are less than half. In photographs and testimonies, In the Fields of the North / En los Campos del Norte shows that these conditions are provoking a new wave of organizing efforts. It is the first book to do so visually, and in the words of farm workers themselves. It is a completely bilingual book, with extensive captions for all the images and oral histories in accessible narrative form.
