Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964
This poster exhibition explores the little-known story of the Bracero Program, the largest guest worker program in U.S. history. Between 1942 and 1964, millions of Mexican men came to the U.S. on short-term labor contracts. Six bilingual posters not only tell a story of exploitation but also one of opportunity. They offer historical context, ask big questions, challenge perceptions, tell powerful stories, and provide a platform that encourages dialogue and civic engagement. Bittersweet Harvest was organized by the National Museum of American History in partnership with SITES, and received support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
