“Rostros del Tiempo: Faces of Time” Art Reception

September 10, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

On Thursday, September 10 at 5:30pm, The Center for the Study of the American South will showcase a photography collection titled “Rostros del Tiempo: Faces of Time“. These portraits depict former Braceros (or sometimes their widows) who once worked in U.S. fields, providing food for Americans from 1942-1964. These elderly men and women gather every Sunday in Ciudad Juarez to protest because they still have not received their retirement benefits since half a century ago.

CSAS will host former Bracero Don Modesto Zurita Estrada as well as professor and community organizer Luis Alfonso Herrera Robles. You can read about the Braceros in Thompson’s new book, Border Odyssey (University of Texas Press, 2015), or view a short film about the Border Odyssey project here. The event will also feature Luis Del Río and Juanito Laguna performing traditional Latin American rhythms and folk/rock tunes from their forthcoming album, “Inmigrante.” This event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
