Harvest of Dignity?

Harvest of Dignity?

"Harvest of Shame", a 1960 documentary created by CBS' Edward R. Murow, was a pioneer in exposing the plight of farm workers in the U.S. However, not much has changed for these workers in the 64 years since the film's initial broadcast.

A newer film, "Harvest of Dignity," focuses on farm workers in North Carolina, providing an in-depth portrait of the people who harvest our food today. It combines interviews with North Carolina farm workers, advocates, faith leaders and educators, documentary photos and interviews collected by Student Action with Farmworkers interns and clips from the original Harvest of Shame documentary.
