Immigrant Journeys from South of the Border ¡Mi travesía hasta Wisconsin! Exhibit
September 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am – September 18, 2021 @ 9:00 am CDT
As our nation debates when and why people from other countries should be allowed to come to the United States, this exhibition invites you to meet eight immigrants whose journeys began in Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, and Honduras, who are living in Wisconsin today. Their stories, told in their own words, together with their photographic portraits, offer a different entry point into the national conversation about immigration. No matter where your life’s journey began, we invite you to enjoy these stories and our shared humanity.
Stop by the 2nd floor of the W.J. Niederkorn Library anytime during our open hours (Monday-Thursday 9am-8pm, Friday 9am-6pm, and Saturday 9am-1pm) from Sept 13-25 to view the exhibit.
This exhibit is a project of the Wisconsin Humanities, produced in partnership with with Centro Hispano of Dane County with stories by journalist Bill Berry and photographs by Gary Porter. Support for the exhibit and WisconsinImmigrantJourneys.org website comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Alumni Circle of the Wisconsin Humanities.
