To celebrate Food Day (October 24th) – BloomBars and DC Fair Food (DCFF) present:
Harvest of Shame (1960, 60 min), by Fred W. Friendly and Edward R. Murrow – in this CBS News production broadcast after Thanksgiving 1960, Murrow points out the plight of migrant farm workers in America. Topics range from harsh living conditions, endless travel and low wages, to poor opportunities for children.
Murrow’s classic documentary resonated deeply for a nation unfamiliar with such brutally honest depictions of the lives of migrant laborers, and led to permanent changes in the laws protecting workers’ rights.
After our screening, we’ll have a Q&A discussion with fair food activists, Josephine Chu and Sarah Vasquez – of the DC Fair Food Network.
