Dance Marathon 40th Year Anniversary
February 20th – March 4th
In honor of the 40th year of Dance Marathon at Northwestern, there will be a special exhibit commemorating the philanthropy and student engagement of Northwestern students. This exhibit will be on the second floor of Norris and is co-sponsored by Dittmar Gallery. Stop by and explore the rich history of DM and Northwestern.
Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964 is a traveling exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. It shares the experiences of Mexican guest workers employed in the United states during and after World War II. The exhibit combines photographs, text, and audio recordings to provide an intimate account of this chapter in the history of U.S.-Mexico relations and Mexican immigration. In addition to contextualizing present-day immigration debates. Bittersweet Harvest recounts a story of exploitation, homesickness, physical hardship, and the allure of opportunity north of the border. We bring this exhibit to Northwestern on the 50th anniversary of the end of the Bracero Program.
