Puerto Rican Migrant Farmworkers: Enduring
Experiences in Continental U.S. Agriculture

 

by  Ismael García Colón

This photo exhibit narrates the history of Puerto Rican farm labor migration to continental U.S. farms and the role of the Farm Labor Program (FLP). It begins with the situation of Puerto Rico that led to farm labor migration and the creation of FLP in the 1940s. The photos show the different aspects of the FLP: recruitment, transportation, distribution, and overseeing of workers. Other photos also illustrate the experiences, living conditions, and work of farmworkers.
