Photography exhibit documents farmworkers’ experiences

Joyner Library welcomes the “More than one story,” or “Más de una historia,” photography exhibit to the RIS hallway, on the first floor, from March 22 through May 10.

The exhibit documents the stories and experiences of farmworkers, mostly in the Carolinas, over the past quarter century. And it celebrates twenty-five years of creating community with farmworkers and students in the Southeast through Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF).

A reception and panel discussion will be held on Tuesday, March 26, from 4:30–6:00 p.m. Panel participants, including migrant workers, SAF students, educators and researchers, will discuss experiences of and issues faced by migrant farmworkers.

The panel includes: Yessy Bustos, postgraduate student; Dr. Greg Kearney, associate professor, Department of Public Health, Brody School of Medicine; Jailene Rodriguez, nursing student; Dr. Essie Torres, associate professor, Department of Health Education and Promotion, College of Health and Human Performance; and moderators Joseph Lee, assistant professor, Department of Health Education and Promotion, and Joanna Welborn, communication arts director at Student Action with Farmworkers.

“More than one story” is sponsored by Joyner Library, Student Action with Farmworkers and the College of Health and Human Performance’s Department of Health Education and Promotion. For more information, contact Charlotte Fitz Daniels at or 252-352-2610.
