In October 2007, a front page article in The Seattle Times declared blueberries to be “Washington’s blue gold” as the state’s second-most-valuable crop per harvested acre. (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2003984712_blues31m.html)
But who is picking the crops?
Join us for the screening of “Blood, Sweat & Berries,” a new documentary directed by a group of college students that portrays the harsh reality under which migrant workers live and work in the state of Washington today.
This event is sponsored by Latin American Studies, the Diversity, Citizenship and Social Justice Track, and Chican@/Xican@ students at Seattle University. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jenny Vlad at firstname.lastname@example.org
