Farmworkers Feed Us All: The Labor and Health of Migrants in Maine

The Occupational Health Disparities Institute is sponsoring a session at APHA in which Tennessee Watson will discuss the making of and will present Farmworkers Feed Us All: The Labor and Health of Migrants in Maine—a joint photo exhibit, multimedia slide show by Tennessee Watson and Earl Dotter. Tennessee Watson is an up and coming documentarian and it’s great that she is coming to APHA. To preview some of her work, I thought you might want to check out her recent radio documentary on the Latino immigrants in Siler City, NC called Nuevo South. It’s extremely well done and does an outstanding job addressing the racial tensions of the changing demographics in the south.

It has just gone live as part of the American Radio Works special, "Pueblo, USA." addition to the audio doc, which you can stream or download, see the photos by Derek Anderson. Also there's a print version of the story (with more detail than the non-narrated audio), as well as a print version en EspaƱol!Listen on the web or check with your local public radio station to see if they'll be broadcasting the special in your area.
