Main Library

In celebration of Farmworkers Awareness Week, join award-winning photographer José Galvez for a presentation honoring farm workers. From Cesar Chavez to the woman picking strawberries to the tobacco worker on the side of the highway, Galvez captures their daily life with respect and pride. Galvez’s work will be on exhibit at the library from March 24-April 26. The exhibit,”Farmworkers in the USA – Then and Now, a Tribute to Cesár Chavez,” will be a combination of his early work in Arizona and California and more recent images in North Carolina and the South. This program is co-sponsored by Student Action With Farmworkers.
