Mireya Loza on the Bracero Program, Migration, and Political History

September 29, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Mireya Loza, curator at the Smithsonian Museum of American History, discusses the Bracero Program (1942-1964), the largest guest worker initiative in U.S. history. Loza’s most recent publication, Defiant Braceros: How Migrant Workers Fought for Racial, Sexual, and Political Freedom (University of North Carolina Press), has been widely lauded as the most comprehensive and extensive historical publication on Braceros and the Bracero Program.

This event is part of the Seeing Stories: Visualizing Sustainable Citizenship Series. Seeing Stories: Visualizing Sustainable Citizenship is co-curated by Temple Contemporary, Temple University’s Office of Sustainability, and Temple University Libraries, along with faculty from the Tyler School of Art, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for the Cinematic and Performing Arts.
