WHS students to present bilingual program Saturday

Staff reports

Everyone is invited to attend the Art & Heritage Center in Windsor between noon-4 p.m. on Saturday where Windsor High School students will help people connect to a special exhibit. The Art & Heritage Center is located at 116 5th St., just north of Pike's Auto.

According to a news release from the town of Windsor, WHS students in Sandi Cumings' Spanish 4 class will present a story activity they created that builds on the themes from the Smithsonian traveling exhibit "Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964."

"Bittersweet Harvest," a bilingual (English/Spanish) exhibition, explores the little-known story of the Bracero program. It was the largest guest worker program in U.S. history; it took place between 1942 and 1964. "Bittersweet Harvest" features the work of famed photojournalist Leonard Nadel, as well as oral histories collected by the Bracero Oral History Project. The exhibition was organized by the National Museum of American History in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and funded by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
