Film Screening: Harvest of Shame

UNCG: The 60's - Exploring the Limits

  • CostFree

This television documentary presented by Greensboro native broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow on CBS showed the plight of American migrant agricultural workers. It was Murrow's final documentary for the network; he left CBS at the end of January 1961, at John F. Kennedy's request, to become head of the United States Information Agency. An investigative report intended "to shock Americans into action," it was "the first time millions of Americans were given a close look at what it means to live in poverty" by their televisions. A guest speaker will provide a presentation before the screening. This program is in partnership with UNCG's The 60's: Exploring the Limits.
